The USO hosts a free lunch for all active military on the Corpus Christi Naval Air Station every Wednesday, serving approximately 150 individuals each week and every other Thursday at Kingsville Naval Air Station, serving approximately 90 military. Lunch budget is $300 for a basic lunch, but if you would like to host a more elaborate lunch, we welcome your generous sponsorship. There are two sponsorship options; Hosted or Sponsored lunches. The level of lunch involvement is up to you and your organization. Many groups enjoy getting together to make meals as a team and serving the military, other prefer to just be servers or more simply, just fund the lunch. Sponsors are promoted on the USO Facebook and through military promotion. The USO also welcomes banners promoting your organization. Sponsors are booked at least four weeks in advance.
All active military and their families are invited to No Dough lunches!
A hosted lunch is where the sponsor provides the meal, either pre-prepared or made at the USO kitchen location and also serves the meals to the military. USO and military volunteers are also available to assist.
A sponsored lunch is where the sponsor simply funds the lunch. USO and military volunteers purchase, prepare and either serve or assist the sponsor in serving the meals.

Weekly menus and sponsors for Corpus Christi can be found on Facebook.
