The Legal Food Frenzy is a collaborative effort between the office of Attorney General Andy Beshear, the office of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and Feeding Kentucky (formerly the Kentucky Association of Food Banks).
The 2019 campaign was March 11 – 18 and was timed to provide an increase in the supply of food available to meet the increased demand for food assistance during the summer months.
Over 1,800 Kentucky attorneys raised the equivalent of over 400,000 meals for our neighbors at risk of hunger!

“As attorney general, my first priority is protecting the Commonwealth’s most vulnerable citizens. Far too often, the most at-risk in our communities struggle to put healthy food on the table for their families. I am proud to establish Kentucky’s first Legal Food Frenzy, a friendly competition between lawyers and firms to see who can donate the most food to Feeding Kentucky. This effort is great opportunity to challenge each other outside the courtroom for a noble cause – reducing hunger in Kentucky” – Attorney General Andy Beshear.
“The KBA Young Lawyers Division is excited to again partner with Feeding Kentucky and the Office of the Attorney General for the 3rd Annual Legal Food Frenzy. This project is an opportunity for the legal community to participate in a statewide hunger relief effort for the benefit of the Commonwealth. No one should go hungry or wonder when they will get 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. Please join in to help us meet our goal to raise $100,000 or the equivalent of 800,000 pounds of food. No donation is too small, every dollar helps feed families across the Commonwealth. – Young Lawyers Division Chair, Jennifer “Jenna” Scholl Overmann.
