Filling in the Blanks – Holiday Backpack Program

Filling in the Blanks fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. FITB currently supports 5500+ students at 200+ locations across 11 Connecticut and New York towns. They deliver a new gift-filled backpack to the children in their program every year. Kids use this backpack year-round to transport their Weekend Meal Bags home.
