Five-Star Food Market

Food Assistance for Military Families

It is estimated that more than 25% of active-duty military families and 10% of veteran families in our area need assistance with groceries.

The ASYMCA Killeen Five-Star Food Market is our newest effort to combat this issue in the community we serve. This program helps military families worry less about hunger and focus on mission readiness by ensuring regular access to meal supplies and snacks.

Program Overview

Active duty and veteran families that could use a little help with groceries can bring an ID with the appropriate service distinction to our Harker Heights Wellness Center on Thursdays; there, they can choose the groceries their family wants and needs, perishables included, free of charge.

First come, first served. No registration is required.

The Five-Star Food Market operates every Thursday.

Active duty soldiers in uniform get early access at 6:30 AM on distribution days – this is part of an increased effort on the part of Armed Services YMCA Killeen to encourage mission readiness.

  • General Hours: 7:00 AM – 5:00 PM
  • Uniformed Active Duty: 6:30 AM – 5:00 PM
