The Attorney General of Virginia, the Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks invite you to participate in the 2019 Legal Food Frenzy!
To date, the Legal Food Frenzy has raised the equivalent of more than 17 million pounds of food. Help us raise even more by registering your firm, legal department, law school, or individual practice today! All winners will be invited to a special award ceremony hosted by the Attorney General of Virginia.
The need for assistance remains high. Nearly 900,000 Virginians, including 250,000 children, are food insecure and often have to worry where their next meal will come from. Virginia’s food banks serve approximately 1 million people a year and work hard to secure the most nutritious items possible. Collectively, they distributed more than 20 million pounds of produce last year to nearly 2,000 partner agencies, and recently started a group purchase program to provide more fresh milk to families in need. They are working hard to feed the line while supporting innovative outreach programs intended to shorten the line. In order to continue and expand their work, they need your help.
For the first time in 13 years, we are changing up the rules so there are more opportunities to win and more reasons to give!
The winning small firm (1 – 24 people) and large firm (25+) from each food bank service area will receive statewide recognition from the Attorney General.
The firm that gives the most per capita (minimum 5 person office) statewide will win the coveted AG Cup.
There will be one statewide winner, respectively, for the ‘Legal Department,’ ‘Law School,’ and ‘Government & Public Service’ categories (per capita).
Each individual branch will compete against other firms in their region. Points from multiple offices will not be tallied together for the purposes of statewide recognition.
500 bonus points for signing up as an office to volunteer
1000 bonus points for referring a firm that did not compete last year (the new firm must recognize their referral source on their completed registration)
