Unite to fight childhood hunger together!

Virtual 5k to benefit Filling in the Blanks

 

What is a Virtual 5k?

You can run/walk anytime between Sunday April 25th and Friday April 30th... anywhere! 
Filling in the Blanks is a local non-profit that fights childhood hunger by providing children in need with meals on the weekends. Since the onset of COVID-19, Connecticut's food insecurity rate has risen from 13.4% to 22.8%. Most children will get breakfast and lunch from school every weekday, but many will go from Friday lunch until Monday's 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, Shawnee Knight and Tina Kramer, Filling in the Blanks is a 501c3 non-profit organization that has grown from serving 50 kids to serving up to 3,000 kids at 65 sites throughout Fairfield and Westchester counties.
