The Legal Food Frenzy is a collaborative effort between the office of Attorney General, the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and Feeding Kentucky.
Team registration begins January 15. The 2021 Legal Food Frenzy fundraising campaign will take place from March 1 through March 15, 2021.
“Food bank reserves have been depleted by growing food insecurity in the Commonwealth during the COVID-19 pandemic. The 2021 Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy campaign offers Kentucky attorneys and legal students the opportunity to make donations of food and funds to meet the needs of Kentuckians. I am proud to partner with Feeding Kentucky and the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division, again this year, to encourage current and future attorneys to establish a Legal Food Frenzy team in their community. Together, I am confident that we can meet this year’s goal of raising the equivalent of 400,000 pounds of food for struggling Kentuckians.” – Attorney General Daniel Cameron
“The KBA Young Lawyers Division is excited to partner with Feeding Kentucky and the Office of the Attorney General again for the 5th Annual Legal Food Frenzy. Currently, one in six adults and one in five children in the Commonwealth of Kentucky struggle with food insecurity, making our state ranked 8th highest in the nation in food insecurity. Food insecurity means facing the choice between paying for medicine, electricity, or food. A decision no one should have to make. Hunger can affect people from all walks of life…your neighbor, your child’s classmate, or even a co-worker. Our partner, Feeding Kentucky distributed the equivalent of 72 million meals across the Commonwealth in 2019 and has reported a substantial increase in need in 2020 as the pandemic continues to escalate. Simply put, the need for donations to fight hunger has never been greater. The good news is attorneys in Kentucky can help! This project is an opportunity for the Kentucky legal community to participate in a statewide hunger relief effort for the benefit of some of the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable citizens. No one should have to go hungry or wonder when they will eat their next meal. Food banks across Kentucky provide a vital service to the community and the Legal Food Frenzy campaign gives lawyers a chance to assist the food banks in their efforts. The support of attorneys across the Commonwealth will help bring Kentucky one step closer to ensuring that all of its citizens have access to adequate food. If every attorney in Kentucky gave as little as five dollars, we could double our goal! Please find it in your heart to give what you can to help fight hunger. I can’t think of a better goal to unite the legal community and I trust that you will help us make this our best Legal Food Frenzy yet!” – Miranda D. Click, Young Lawyers Division Chair
