Legal Food Frenzy Logo
A recent study by Feeding America found that almost 1.2 million Virginians are considered “food insecure.” A large number of these individuals are children, senior citizens, disabled adults, and the new face of hunger—individuals who have lost their jobs, are unemployed or underemployed, and are having problems making ends meet. In fact, Virginia’s food banks continue to experience record demand for services. In 2014 alone, the food banks of Virginia have distributed almost 142 million pounds of food and grocery products.
In response to this urgent need, the Office of the Attorney General, The Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks joined efforts in 2007 to create the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy—a food and fund drive competition among all Virginia law firms and organizations. 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, the Attorney presents 11 additional awards in categories for sole practitioner, small, medium, and large size firm, and top law school, top government/public interest office, and top corporate legal department.
Over the past eight years, law firms, legal organizations, and law schools who participated in the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy have raised the equivalent of more than 11.4 million pounds of food.
