"Travelin' Table" Bus Will Feed Kids This Summer In Remote Parts Of Centre And Clearfield Counties

A repurposed school bus painted with fruits and vegetables on the side will soon be traveling through Centre and Clearfield Counties to feed kids during the summer.


At an open house yesterday, Centre County YMCA President Scott Mitchell said the organization’s Travelin’ Table bus will provide services to outlying areas that can’t get to the Y’s summer feeding sites. 


“We’re going to be able to provide food, education, medical screenings and medical support to these families and also help them navigate where to get those services,” Mitchell said. 


The Travelin’ Table will also give out books to combat summer reading loss, teach kids about nutritional food in its onboard kitchen, and give out boxes of food to families that are struggling to put food on the table for their children.
