“Filling in the Blanks enables us to address the very serious issue of weekend hunger, and we would not be able to do so without this wonderful organization. Student complaints about not eating over the weekend have diminished, which is a great relief to all of us. Roxbury is indeed fortunate that when our families needed this resource, Ms. Kramer and Ms. Knight were there, and they continue to come through week after week.”

“The Filling in the Blanks Program has been such a valuable and important program at Stark School. The students who participate in the program not only love the food and look forward to receiving a bag each week but for many the comfort of knowing that they have something to eat on the weekend is unimaginable.”

“The Filling in the Blanks program has been a huge success in our school. The families that participate are very appreciative of the program and the healthy and balanced food provided. The faculty and staff of our building are so pleased to have this program in our building that they volunteer their time to help distribute the food to students’ lockers each week.”

“We have been very lucky to partner with Filling in the Blanks for the past three years at our schools and summer camps. The relief and food security that this program offers to our families is life changing. Each of the students and campers that participate in this program goes home with a bag that has enough food to provide all of their meals throughout the weekend. This is a huge benefit for them, as all of the youth in our programs are provided free breakfast and lunch by the school, and not all of them necessarily have food at home on the weekends. Filling
in the Blanks ensures that they do.”
