Since its establishment in 2013, Filling in the Blanks (FITB) has continuously provided the community's children with weekend meals. Ensuring children have adequate access to food over the weekend while not in school. FITB is based in Norwalk, CT, and provides over 5,300 children weekly with weekend meal bags at over 155 sites throughout Fairfield and Westchester Counties, including every school in Bridgeport, Norwalk, and Stamford, CT.
