Taste of the Town is an inclusive community project that is supported by area businesses and residents.
This event brings together the community as they mobilize human and financial resources to improve lives in Centre County. The first Taste of the Town event was held in 1997.  The original founder describes this event
as an experience which was born out of love for individuals in need. Originally the event was the major fundraiser for The AIDS Project. In 2011, that organization closed and gifted the event to the Centre County United Way (CCUW).

Today, Taste of the Town is the signature event for the CCUW.
