Feeding San Diego Calls in the Legal Community to Join ‘Food from the Bar’ Campaign

2020 campaign to overrule hunger ends June 15

San Diego CA— Feeding San Diego is inviting San Diego’s legal community to combat hunger through its annual Food from the Bar campaign. This year’s effort is more imperative than ever given the increased need for hunger-relief services due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Participants engage in a friendly competition between legal professionals and firms to raise funds for Feeding San Diego and build awareness of hunger in San Diego County. Last year, 500 law professionals were engaged in Food from the Bar. Since the campaign began in 2012, Feeding San Diego and participating legal professionals have raised more than 1,062,000 meals for children and families in need.

“This campaign leads us into the start of summer when San Diego children struggling with hunger normally lose access to school-based nutrition programs. With the COVID-19 pandemic-related school closures in effect since mid-March, the increased need for food is even more staggering,” said Vince Hall, CEO of Feeding San Diego. “We are grateful to the San Diego legal community for coming together to help end hunger during this time of widespread hunger.”

Law firms, in-house counsel, and legal departments can register to compete by raising funds as a team through June 15. Current partners include: Johnson Fistel, LLP, Pettit Kohn Ingrassia Lutz & Dolin PC, San Diego Paralegal Association, San Diego County Public Defender Office, Larrabee Albi Coker LLP, Hahn Loeser & Parks LLP, Nicolaides Fink Thorpe Michaelides Sullivan LLP, Paul, Plevin, Sullivan & Connaughton LLP, Perkins Coie LLP, and the San Diego County Public Defender’s Office.
