With the Central Market at Preston and Royal currently closed, the absence of healthy, no-prep meals is acutely felt in Preston Hollow. To remedy that, H-E-B has brought one of their disaster response fleet to the Preston Royal Shopping Center. The mobile kitchen arrived today and will be available to serve meals to first responders, construction workers, and neighbors affected by the tornado through Saturday, Oct. 26, the company said.
Meals are free of charge, as are the complimentary cleaning supply kits the company will hand out to the first 500 homeowners starting tomorrow morning. H-E-B will also have produce, snacks, and waters available on-site through Tuesday.
Meals will be served from the Mobile Kitchen: Thursday, Oct. 24 through Saturday, Oct. 26
Breakfast hours: 8 – 10 a.m.
Lunch hours: Noon – 2 p.m.
Dinner hours: 4 – 6 p.m. (7 p.m. curfew in place)

It will be accompanied by a 53’ refrigerator trailer for the transportation of perishable food items and supplies.
