An excited crowd of approximately 17,000 people flocked to the sounds of music and mouth-watering smells that came from the 5th Annual Battle of the Food Trucks and International Food Festival at the Killeen Community Center on Saturday.

The festival was organized by the Hispanic-American Chamber of Commerce-Central Texas, which promotes the economic development of small businesses in Central Texas. But the festival serves as a way for members of the chamber to give back to the community. With proceeds in the past going towards children’s hospitals, fire stations, and professional development for chamber members.
