The Alabama Legal Food FrenzyA food & fund drive among all Alabama lawyers
Legal Food Frenzy 2017 - April 24 - May 5, 2017
More than 1.8 million Alabamians need food assistance.
More than one in four children in Alabama come from families that experience food hardships. Alabama’s eight regional food banks distributed more than 50 million pounds of food last year through their network of more than 1,500 partner agencies and pantries. And the need continues to grow. Food donations are traditionally slow in late spring and early summer as families focus on end-of-school activities and summer vacations. Food Banks and their agencies see the demand for food increase during this time as the 385,00 children who depend on access to breakfast and lunch at school are home for the summer months. Only 10% of children who receive free or reduced lunches during the school year have access to summer meal programs.
In response to these challenges, in 2017 the Alabama Attorney General’s Office, the Alabama State Bar and the Alabama Food Bank Association will join together to help end child hunger with the launch of the Alabama Legal Food Frenzy set for April 24 – May 5, 2017. Law firms across the state will compete to see who can raise the most food and funds for the eight regional food banks in Alabama.
