A recent study by Feeding America found that over
1 million Virginians are considered “food insecure.”
This represents nearly a 54% increase since 2006. 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
2012 alone, the food banks of Virginia have distributed
over 122 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
Over the past seven years, law firms, legal organizations, and
law schools who participated in the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy
have raised the equivalent of more than 10 million pounds
This year, our hope is to raise even more food and funds, so
that we can meet the increased demand seen at our seven member
food banks from Virginians in need. To reach our goal, we need
each and every law firm, legal department, law office, law
school, and court in Virginia to participate.
