KPLE-TV, a nonprofit television ministry owned and operated by the Killeen Christian Broadcasting Corporation, will host its annual banquet from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at the Killeen Civic and Conference Center.

Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary in Charlotte, N.C., and former president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, is the featured speaker.

Gary Anthony, minister of music at First Baptist Church of Temple, will provide special music for the evening.

The dinner is being prepared and served by the Bell Baptist Feeding Unit of the Central Texas Disaster Response Team. The response team will bring its mobile unit to serve food.

When disaster strikes, emergency management offices across the nation call upon units able to respond quickly. The Central Texas team is one such unit.

Several units under the auspices of the Texas Baptist Men are based across Texas and respond when the call is received.

One such group is the Feeding Unit of the Central Texas Disaster Response Team. The unit, part of the Bell Baptist Association, has responded to disasters in West, Granbury and Austin, as well as Oklahoma and New Jersey after Hurricane Sandy.

The unit, which was established in 2012, has about 100 volunteers from communities across Central Texas. Its executive chef is Gene Hagan.

The mobile kitchen is valued at $250,000 and is transported on four tandem-axle trailers. When operating at full strength, it can prepare and serve 6,000 meals a day. KPLE invites Central Texans to the meal and to learn about the station’s programs. Call 254-554-3683 or 877-640-5673.
