HEB Sets Up Mobile Kitchen in Preparation of Feast of Sharing

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

HEB set up a mobile kitchen that can make up to 3,500 meals an hour outside of the American Bank Center on Friday as part of their annual Feast of Sharing event.

Managers with HEB and road crew members set up the state of the art, trailer-sized kitchen just before noon. They plan to feed at least 10,000 people during the yearly Christmas Eve feast.

"It's a good feeling, knowing that you are helping someone get a hot dinner," said Andy Perez, the driver of the mobile kitchen. "It's helping someone that needs something. Back here there is a lot of chaos, getting everything situated, and at the end it comes out real good, and it's a real good plate to eat."

Perez said that all the participants feel great about the Feast of Sharing, knowing that it helps to fill a genuine need in this community.
