CAN FEED A CHILD FOR THE WEEKEND
Filling in the Blanks is bridging the weekend meal gap for children.
Most of the children in our program get breakfast and lunch from school every weekday and would have gone hungry over the weekends.
When the obstacle of food insecurity is removed, children experience increased academic achievement in school and increase opportunities for success in their lives.
Nearly half of the low-income
households in Connecticut do not qualify for federal assistance because their earnings are too high for the income requirements.
