Cory Watson Attorneys is proud to participate in the third annual Alabama Legal Food Frenzy.
Did you know? More than 1.8 million Alabamians need food assistance.
More than one in four children in Alabama come from families that experience food hardships. Alabama’s eight regional food banks distributed more than 50 million pounds of food last year through their network of more than 1,500 partner agencies and pantries, and the need continues to grow.
Food donations are typically slow in late spring and early summer as families focus on end-of-school activities and summer vacations. However, food banks and their agencies see the demand for food increase during this time as the 390,000 children who depend on access to school meals are home for the summer. Only 15% of children who receive free or reduced lunches during the school year have access to summer meal programs.
That’s where the Alabama Legal Food Frenzy comes in.
In response to these challenges, the Alabama State Bar, the Attorney General’s Office, and the Alabama Food Bank Association have joined forces to create a friendly food and fund drive competition among Alabama lawyers, law firms, law schools and legal organizations to support the Feeding America food banks in Alabama.
We value excellence in all that we do, and it was an outstanding effort from the Cory Watson attorneys and staff for their generosity and participation throughout this food drive. Cory Watson Attorneys joined together to help end child hunger and donated hundreds of canned food items to the Community Food Bank of Central Alabama.
Way to serve the hungry, Team Cory Watson! For more information about The Alabama Legal Food Frenzy, please visit their website.
