This year, the Legal Food Frenzy did things a little differently to acommodate for safety during the COVID-19 pandemic. Instead of food donations, participants contributed money. And instead of a two-week campaign window, law firms in Virginia were given the entire month of April.
The Legal Food Frenzy is an annual competition among Virginia law firms, law schools, and other legal professional organizations, that helps to raise food and money for local food banks. It is run jointly by the office of the Attorney General, The Young Lawyers Division of The Virginia Bar Association, and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.
The goal of Legal Food Frenzy is to help meet the rising needs of Virginia communities and residents that are food insecure. Demand for food and grocery products continues to be an urgent need in Virginia, with food banks in Virginia experiencing record requests for help. The global pandemic has intensified the issue. For the past fourteen years, the Legal Food Frenzy continues to be one of the largest food drives in Virginia.
This year, in terms of dollars, the seven offices of Allen & Allen pooled together over $15,000 for the Legal Food Frenzy.
“We are so grateful for the generous giving throughout our offices that has led to this significant accomplishment,” said Allen Law Firm president Edward L. Allen.
