In the case of a tie it will be split between the two winners. The challenge is from Oct 23 to Nov 22. The week of Oct 23rd will be the check in/ weigh in. Nov 22 will be the closing weigh in date. OBSC is here to support you during the challenge. We will provide a basic nutrition plan and exercise plan for you for the challenge period.

Thanksgiving Meal Bag Collection

Every year, our community has generously provided traditional sides and trimmings to help Beach Food Pantry clients at the time of Thanksgiving. Last year, we did something different. We asked our community to donate Thanksgiving Meal Bags that were distributed to current Beach Food Pantry clients the week prior to Thanksgiving. The response was amazing! The food-filled grocery bags included a donated turkey - or a gift card to purchase one - along with items for a traditional holiday meal. We are so grateful for a community of individuals and businesses who offer support throughout the year to help us fight hunger in Dare County. This year, we will be collecting bags on Friday, November 17th from 4PM-6PM. Use the list below to fill one bag or gather family and friends together to fill more!
