Indiana State Bar Association sponsors 8th Annual March Against Hunger competition
The Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) is teaming up with the Office of the Indiana Attorney General and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) for its eighth consecutive year to sponsor March Against Hunger, a friendly food drive competition to raise both non-perishable food and monetary donations for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks March 1-31.
The competition is an opportunity for attorneys statewide to help put food on the tables of those struggling in our state. Since 2009, the March Against Hunger food drive has generated 62,459 pounds of food and $282,027.91 in monetary donations for Indiana food banks.
The winner in each of the following categories will be presented with the coveted “Attorney General’s Cup” trophy:
- Solo Proprietor (1 lawyer)
- Small Firm (2-11 lawyers)
- Medium Firm (12-21 lawyers)
- Large Firm (22-49 lawyers)
- X-Large Firm (50+ lawyers)
- Public/Non-Profit/Local Bar
- Law Schools
New this year! For law firms with multiple offices participating in the competition, the trophy will be presented to the office that collects the most in pounds per attorney (monetary donations + non-perishable food donations divided by the number of attorneys in the office). Please note: Every dollar raised will count as 5 pounds. Also, in addition to the "Attorney General's Cup" trophy, the firm in each category that collects the most non-perishable food donations will receive a certificate.
Sign up to participate by clicking "Register" above. Firms can sign up anytime before the competition begins or during the collection period.
