On September 29, 2020, Filling in the Blanks will hold its Seventh Annual Golf Outing. The event, held at the prestigious GlenArbor Golf Club in Bedford NY, is our marquee fundraising effort and your participation will enable us to continue fighting childhood hunger in our local communities.
In Fairfield County, more than 33,000 children are not sure where their next meal will come from. Most will get breakfast and lunch from school every weekday, but many will go from Friday lunch until Monday at breakfast without a decent meal. Filling in the Blanks is an organization that fills in those weekend gaps by providing each child in its program with a bag filled with healthy food for the weekend. When the obstacle of food insecurity is removed, children experience increased academic achievement in school and increase opportunities for success in their lives.
Founded in 2013 by two Fairfield County residents, Filling in the Blanks is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has grown from serving 50 kids to serving more than 2,200 kids in Fairfield and Westchester counties.
