Legal Feeding Frenzy Northwest North Carolina
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Mar 31, 2017
Support Second Harvest Food Bank through the Legal Feeding Frenzy March 6-March 31, 2017!
Attorney General Josh Stein, the Young Lawyers Division of the N.C. Bar Association, the N.C. Association of Food Banks and Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina want you to join us for the Legal Feeding Frenzy!
Over 1.8 million North Carolinians are considered “food insecure,” one of the highest rates in the country, according to a recent study by Feeding America. Many of these individuals are children, senior citizens, and disabled adults. Many others show the new face of hunger—individuals who have lost their jobs, are unemployed or underemployed. In many other instances it is a working mother or working parents who are still struggling to keep food on the table. Sadly, North Carolina has one of the highest rates of children under age five experiencing a lack of adequate food; nearly one in four.
In fact, Second Harvest Food Bank continues to experience record demand for services. This year, we expect to distribute nearly 36 million pounds of food to the 18 counties of Northwest North Carolina.
And we need your help to do it.
In response to this urgent and growing need, the Office of the Attorney General, The Young Lawyers Division of The North Carolina Bar Association, and the North Carolina Association of Food Banks have joined efforts to create the North Carolina Legal Feeding Frenzy—a food and fund drive competition among all North Carolina law firms and organizations to assist North Carolina’s Feeding America Food Banks, including Second Harvest.
In this friendly competition, the law firm or organization that raises the most food (based on a per person average—attorneys and staff) will be awarded the prestigious and highly coveted “Attorney General’s Cup.” In addition, Attorney General Josh Stein will present additional awards in categories including: Sole Practitioner, Small Firm, Medium Firm, Large Firm, Law School, Public Interest, and Corporate/In-House Counsel. Government/public interest offices and corporate legal departments are encouraged to participate as well and will be grouped into the categories listed above based on size.
Thank you for supporting Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina and the Legal Feeding Frenzy!
