Get Ready To Frenzy!

By Michele Livingstone

Around 1 in 4 children are food insecure in North Carolina, and over 1.5 million people, from children to seniors, are food insecure. The NCBA YLD’s Legal Feeding Frenzy is an opportunity for the legal community to come together to fight hunger in your local communities. Running for the month of March, Legal Feeding Frenzy is a month-long food and funds drive competition to see who can raise the most food per employee to benefit local Feeding the Carolina food banks. Law firms, solo practitioners, law schools, and corporate counsel are all encouraged to participate. By donating to the food banks, your dollars go further. Every dollar helps provide five meals. ($1 = 5 meals). Get your team together today! Registration is now live here.

Want to volunteer?  Join us at our kickoff event on Feb. 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the local food bank in Raleigh (Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, 1924 Capital Blvd., Raleigh, NC, 27604) to help kick off the competition. One hundred (100) pounds of food will be awarded as a bonus to each team that has an attendee at the Kickoff Event on Feb. 28. Please contact Erin Ball at erin@gardnerskelton.com to reserve space for you and your firm.

Interested in volunteering, but not in Raleigh? If your firm is interested in coordinating a volunteer event, we can help with that, too. Two hundred (200) pounds of food will be awarded as a bonus to each team that arranges an event for their firm at their local food bank during the month of March. Contact Erin Ball at erin@gardnerksleton.com for assistance in planning and to receive credit for your participation.

After March 1, visit NC Legal Feeding Frenzy to donate and keep an eye on your competition.
