Mothers in Law is a team supporting Lawyers Feeding Illinois, a new initiative of the Illinois State Bar Association. In cooperation with the 8 regional food banks in the state (known as Feeding Illinois), Lawyers Feeding Illinois aims to provide One Million Meals to the hungry and food insecure across Illinois. The campaign ends March 1st.
Here are the sad stats. More than 1.9 million people in Illinois are facing hunger. But 100% of your donation will go to the hungry (thanks to ATG for covering the processing funds), and due to the purchasing power of the food banks, every $1 provides 5 meals. Amazing. And your donations feed the local food bank, so you are helping the hungry in your own community.
