ISBA to sponsor annual March Against Hunger competition

The State Bar is teaming up with the Office of the Indiana Attorney General and Feeding Indiana's Hungry for its 10th consecutive year to sponsor March Against Hunger, a fund drive competition for lawyers to raise money for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks March 1-31. Since 2009, the March Against Hunger food drive has generated 70,019 pounds of food and $378,730.69 in monetary donations.

Due to the stewardship of resources, food reclamation from area groceries and purchasing power as a larger non-profit, for every $1, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry can provide up to 9x the amount in groceries to those in need. For this reason, the competition will be a virtual campaign only.

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 School

Visit to donate today!

Firms can donate anytime before the competition begins or during the month of March. When donating online, please be sure to include "March Against Hunger – [YOUR FIRM NAME]."
