The Legal Community Fights Hunger
With the Annual Food from the Bar

The legal community comes together annually at this time to raise additional funds for the Food Bank so that parents can continue to feed their children during the summer months from local food pantries and Food Bank programs.  The campaign is held from April 30 - May 25 and will have firms, legal organizations and administrators donate food, funds and volunteer.  Learn more here.

 

Recording Artist Jewel
Volunteers at the Food Bank

On March 7, 2012, platinum recording artist Jewel volunteered at the Food Bank as part of ConAgra Foods' and Feeding America nationally recognized "Child Hunger Ends Here" campaign.  The campaign's mission is to raise awareness about the realities of the 16 million children facing hunger in America and to help provide over 3 million meals to families in need.

Supporters are able to help raise money for their local food bank by visiting www.childhungerendshere.com, and entering a code for one of ConAgra's participating brands.  At the end of the campaign, which runs through 8/31/2012, the ten food banks with the greatest number of codes entered within their service area will win a $10,000 grant to support their child hunger programs.

  For every $1 the Food Bank receives it can distribute enough food for four meals through our network of agencies.
