Kentucky law firms kick off statewide Legal Food Frenzy to collect food, donations for food banks

The Kentucky Bar Association’s Young Lawyers’ Division has kicked off its annual Legal Food Frenzy and wants Kentucky attorneys to help feed the hungry.

The Food Frenzy is a statewide competition amongst Kentucky law firms, law schools, and legal organizations to raise food and funds to support Feeding Kentucky, the statewide network of food banks. The competition runs through March 14.

Zachary Horn, chair of Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers’ Division, said this year’s goal is to raise 800,000 pounds of food or $100,000. Every $1 contributed will count as eight pounds of food for the competition.

“The KBA Young Lawyers’ Division is excited to once again partner with Feeding Kentucky and the Office of the Attorney General for the 4th Annual Legal Food Frenzy,” said Horn.

“This project is an opportunity for the Kentucky legal community to participate in a statewide hunger relief effort for the benefit of some of the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable citizens. No one should have to go hungry or wonder when they will eat their next meal. Please join us to help meet our goal of raising $100,000 or the equivalent of 800,000 pounds of food. No donation is too small, and every little bit helps.”

The law firm or organization that raises the most resources for hunger relief will win the “Attorney General’s Cup” that Attorney General Daniel Cameron will present at the state Bar Convention in June.

Other top-winner categories include solo practitioner, small firm, medium firm, large firm, law school, corporate legal department, government entity, and Kentucky Bar Association Supreme Court District.

Last year over 1,800 attorneys licensed in Kentucky competed for the grand prize, the Attorney General’s Cup. Frost Brown Todd, LLC, won the 2019 competition by raising the equivalent of 42,315 pounds of food.
