WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - In a time where food is hard to find, a Wilmington restaurant opened up their doors and offered free food to the public Monday.

Savorez, located on Chestnut St. cooked up the last of their food that made it through the hurricane today and gave it out for free to anyone who stopped by.

"The restaurants have a lot of product in here that we're just sitting on," said Savorez owner Sam Cahoon. "A lot of it did make it through the storm thankfully. But there's a lot of people without power, there's a lot of people without food and we just want to do what we can to give back."

A chef from Cast Iron Kitchen brought over five lbs of corn beef, 10 lbs of sausage and 20 lbs of chicken among some other things that they were able to cook up for the public.

The restaurant still doesn't have power but wanted to do this to help out the community as everyone tries to get back on their feet after the hurricane.

"We always give back to the community," Cahoon said. "We don't normally just open and cook a bunch of food for free obviously. But we're always giving back in whatever way we can."
