Organize a Food Drive
Thank you for hosting a food drive!
Below you'll find everything you need to make yours a success.
Thousands of local children in CT and NY are experiencing food insecurity, an issue only made worse by the pandemic. With your help, we can continue to provide free weekend meals to students in need.
We welcome food drives any time of the year. Food drives are essential to help Filling in the Blanks replenish our supplies and keep our weekend meal bags filled with nutritious food for local kids.
We're fighting childhood hunger one meal at a time.
Figures reflect our work over the last 12 months.
