Skippy’s Ice Cream Truck Is Giving Away Free Treats To Children In CNY

Bridge Street

Now is the perfect time to scream for ice cream because Skippy’s Ice cream truck is providing the tasty treat to lunch distribution centers in Central New York for free.

Teaming up with the Liverpool Center school district, Skippy’s will be handing out ice cream to children who are receiving free bagged lunches from 18 school locations. Skippy’s owner, Gina Husted says she’s ready to put smiles on children’s faces.

“To control everything with the CDC regulations, we are handing them out a treat. They won’t be able to choose this time… but we have a good variety for them,” she adds.

Husted, who is from Liverpool and has children who are also missing out on school festivities due to COVID-19, says the struggling times and the uncertainty in the community inspired her to give back.

“I don’t know what kids are going through at home… we are just hoping this can bring some joy to them and they can forget about something for a little while, get an ice cream treat and smile.”

For those who wish to sponsor Skippy’s or want to have the truck visit their district, visit for more information.
