Food From the Bar Results

By Ella Daniels June 13, 2014

This May, the Washington legal community competed for 30 days in the sixth and largest Food From the Bar campaign to raise money and collect food for the Capital Area Food Bank.  Together, 30 local law firms, law schools and legal organizations raised $131,736.59 and collected 1,593 pounds of food.  Proceeds will support the equivalent of 300,000 meals this year for children, seniors families and facing hunger in our community.  Since 2008, the local legal community has raised enough to support the equivalent of 1.5 million meals for people living at risk of hunger in our community.FFTB pic  PNG
