Island Resident to Knit Twelve Hours on Sunday for Food Insecurity Awareness

Island resident and gas station manager Heather Durdil will knit for twelve hours on Sunday to help bring awareness to Food Insecurity.  Ms. Durdil blogs at

The Knit for Food Knit-a-thon, a 12 hour crafting event in support of organizations feeding the hungry, is gearing up for its third annual event on Sunday, March 26, 2023 from 10am-10pm ET.


To support Heather’s endeavor, please visit Knit for Food Knit-a-Thon 2023!

The first Knit for Food Knit-a-thon was launched on March 8, 2021, with the goal of raising a total of $10,000 to be contributed to Feeding America, World Central Kitchen, No Kid Hungry, and Meals on Wheels. The event was a major success, raising more than $265,000 with 100% of the funds collected split evenly between the four organizations. In 2022 we raised over $271,000! That’s more than $500,000 raised by knitters.

Food insecurity has become a reality for even more Americans as the cost of basic food items has increased due to inflation. Far too many Americans struggle to put food on the table. Our participants are committed to raising funds to help ease this unnecessary suffering.
