WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - Casey’s restaurant is offering free food to anyone who wants a meal. Employees will hand out boxes of food to anyone who shows up from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday.
The owners, Larry and Gena Casey, decided to provide the free meals after Governor Roy Cooper’s executive order to close all dine-in restaurants. Takeout orders are still allowed, but even outdoor seating is not permitted.
“It’s a blessing from us back to the community who has given us so much,” says owner Gena Casey.
Food will be provided until it runs out or until 3 p.m., whichever comes first.
Casey’s restaurant is located at 5559 Oleander Dr.
