Tift summer feeding program underway


The YMCA is partnering with the Tift County Board of Education to make sure kids don't go hungry this summer.

On Wednesday they were at one of their 12 sites in Tifton feeding kids lunch. 

They'll do this five days a week. Kids up to the age of 18 are invited to come out.

"A lot of those kids are  not able to have those meals during the day so if we can reach out and help provide those meals for them its very beneficial for them," says Tift YMCA CEO Darian Peavy.

He says they plan to have an after school program as well once the summer time wraps up.
