News 10 is reporting that Operation Homefront was able to serve hundreds of Central Texas Military Vets a free meal on Sunday.

Shiloh Inns in Killeen was the home base for military families to pick up a free meal kit for the holidays.

"I love the idea of being able to give back and a little bit of a thank you," said program coordinator for Operation Homefront Rebekah Reyes.

Operation Homefront has served over 400,000 people in its history. On Sunday, over 500 meals were given out to families in need.

"Really nice to know there are organizations and groups and people out there looking to do a little something extra for us who have to sometimes work during this time of year, especially overseas and away from our families," said Fort Hood resident Sgt. Jennifer Davila.

Overall, Sunday showed how much helping others during the holiday season can make a difference in people's lives.

"I know everyone struggles a little bit during this time of year. So, it's a little extra help now saying 'hey we got you for dinner, go out and buy that extra gift or pay that bill," Reyes said.
