LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) – Food Finders Food Bank is joining a statewide food drive competition for the month of March.
The event is called the 6th Annual March Against Hunger. Attorney General Greg Zoeller visited Food Finders Monday and kicked off the competition. Food Finders is one of 11 regional food banks involved in the event.
Zoeller is asking lawyers to step up this month and help fight hunger. Law groups have until March 31 to donate goods and raise money.
In a press release Zoeller said this friendly food drive competition gives lawyers a chance to help those in need, particularly during this harsh winter when the costs of home heating have been significant.
“It also shows how lawyers in our state step up to serve in time of need,” said Zoeller. “We’re grateful for the partnerships with Feedings Indiana’s Hungry, local food banks and law groups which selflessly pull together each year to give back to the communities we serve.”
Last year more than 52 law groups helped raise more than 10,000 pounds of food and more than $55,000.
