At the YMCA of Centre County, we have taken a stand against childhood hunger. In 2004 we started the Free Summer Lunch Program offering meals to any and all school age children throughout the summer. To date, we have served over 150,000 free meals. In 2014 we started a Backpack Food Program in the Philipsburg-Osceola Area School District which provides students food to eat over the weekend when they are not in school. By the end of the 2014-2015 school year, over 140 backpacks were being sent home each weekend.
