The Alabama Legal Food FrenzyA food & fund drive among all Alabama lawyers
Legal Food Frenzy 2019 – April 22 – May 3, 2019
We are pleased to announce the 4th Annual Alabama Legal Food Frenzy will be held April 22nd – May 3rd, 2019. This year has been filled with national and local headlines about our neighbors in need turning to food banks for assistance. Alabama’s network of food banks provides support during times of personal, natural and political disasters.
Over the next seven weeks, the Alabama Bar Association, Alabama Attorney General’s Office and the Alabama Food Bank Association will challenge lawyers, law firms, law schools and legal organizations to raise funds and food to help feed 1.8 needy Alabamians.
Alabama is home to four Feeding America food banks and four Feeding America Partner Distribution Organizations, that together serve all 67 counties. They purchase and provide food to over 1,500 pantry and soup kitchen programs across our states.
One in four Alabama children don’t always know where their next meal is coming from – many rely on school meals as their primary food for the day.
The timing of the legal food frenzy is important. This food and fund drive helps stock our food banks before summer- a time when more than 390,000 Alabama children who receive free and reduced lunches are out of school. Families turn to food banks during this time to help fill the gap.
Every dollar helps – just $1 could help provide at least 5-8 meals.
Many Alabamians are one job loss or medical crisis from food insecurity – but some people, including children and seniors, may be at greater risk of hunger than others. The Legal Food Frenzy is a tangible example of the power lawyers have when they work together toward a common service goal: providing support for our fellow Alabamians in need of food assistance. Won’t you join with us today to help end child hunger! Thank you for your consideration.
