Organize a Food Drive

About Hunger

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.
