5-7-20 Killeen Seniors to Receive Free Meals Monday

CARES Act funding being used to meet basic needs of local senior citizens.

The City of Killeen has allocated a portion of its federal CARES Act funding to provide meals for area seniors in need. Through a partnership with Killeen Food Care Center, the City will deliver meals to 262 recipients Monday.

City and Killeen Food Care Center staff will sort, load and deliver more than 500 emergency response boxes purchased from Capital Area Food Bank in Austin. Each box contains about one week’s worth of non-perishable food items that can be prepared easily at home. Each recipient will receive two boxes.

Boxes will be delivered to four low-income senior living facilities in Killeen and to seniors who utilize the City’s elderly transportation program.

“Being able to assist many of our most vulnerable elderly residents with basic food during this COVID-19 time of shelter in place is a community development priority,” said Executive Director of Community Development Leslie Hinkle. “We are proud that we are able to partner with Killeen Food Care Center, which ‘stands in the gap’ every day and provides such valuable service to our community.”

Media interested in covering this program should contact Hilary Shine at for additional details.
