LA’s legal community helps fight hunger and give hope!
Food From The Bar is an annual, month-long fundraising and volunteering effort, held every May. The campaign is a friendly competition including legal firms, law schools and legal services organizations, to see who could raise the most funds, acquire the most food, and work the most volunteer hours for the Food Bank in an effort to feed the children of Los Angeles County who may go hungry in the summer months.
Since the campaign began in Los Angeles in 2009, it has raised more than $4 million.
Thank you to all who participated in 2019, raising more funds than ever before in the history of this campaign.
In the 11th year of the campaign in Los Angeles, the law firms and legal service organizations raised more $500,000, which represents more than 2 million meals for hungry children in our community.
