North Carolina Needs YOU!
Over 1.8 million North Carolinians are “food insecure” -- one of the highest rates in the country.
So many of the 1 in 4 people in Northwest North Carolina who are struggling to get enough healthy, nutritious food on their tables are children, seniors, and people with disabilities. But many others show the new face of hunger—individuals who have lost their jobs, are unemployed or underemployed.
Too many of our neighbors are faced with hard choices. Families are choosing between paying rent and buying food; seniors are choosing between buying medicine and buying food; workers are choosing between paying for transportation and buying food.
We want this to change. But we can't do it alone.
Calling on the Legal Community:
In response to this urgent and massive need, the Office of the Attorney General, The Young Lawyers Division of the North Carolina Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Foundation, and Feeding The Carolinas have joined efforts to create the North Carolina Legal Feeding Frenzy—-a food and fund drive competition among all North Carolina law firms, law schools, and organizations to assist Feeding The Carolinas’ Food Banks.
In this friendly competition, the law firm, school, or organization that raises the most food (based on a per person average—attorneys and staff) will be awarded the prestigious and highly coveted “Attorney General’s Cup.”
In addition, Attorney General Josh Stein will present additional awards in categories including: Sole Practitioner, Small Firm, Medium Firm, Large Firm, Law School, Public Interest, and Corporate/In-House Counsel. Government/public interest offices and corporate legal departments are encouraged to participate as well and will be grouped into the categories listed above based on size.
