Hero's Marketplace

Food Assistance for Military Families

It is estimated that more than 25% of active-duty military families and 10% of veteran families in our area need assistance with food.

The ASYMCA Oklahoma Hero’s Marketplace is our newest effort to combat food insecurity in the community we serve. This program helps reduce food-related stressors on military families so they can focus on mission readiness.

Program Overview

Active duty and veteran families that could use a little help with groceries can bring an ID with the appropriate service distinction to our Little Explorers Bld(860 Cache Road)  there, they pick up a 30lb food box  and choose anything else  their family wants and needs, perishables included, free of charge.

**Appointments are avalible and prefered for pickups**

The Hero’s Marketplace operates every day.

Active duty soldiers in uniform get early access to the Hero’s Marketplace at 9:00AM on distribution days – this is part of an increased effort on the part of Armed Services YMCA Oklahoma to encourage mission readiness.
