Food From the Bar

LA’s legal community helps fight hunger and give hope!

OUR GOAL:

You Did It!

$500,000 RAISED

100% | $500,000 Raised

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 over $4 million.
