The Legal Food Frenzy is a collaborative effort between the office of Attorney General Andy Beshear, the Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, the office Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks. Law firms, legal offices and law schools across the state will engage in a friendly competition to raise funds for hunger relief. The 2017 campaign will run from March 27th through April 7th and is timed to provide an increase in the supply of food available to meet the increased demand for food assistance during the summer months.
Our goal is 600,000 pounds, or $150,000.
Sign up your legal organization here. After registration, a food bank representative will contact you to make arrangements for donation barrels.

“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 the Kentucky Association of Food Banks. 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 partner with the Kentucky Association of Food Banks and the Office of the Attorney General in Kentucky’s first statewide hunger relief effort by its legal community. Currently, one in six adults and one in five children in Kentucky struggle with this very real problem. The Legal Food Frenzy campaign, with the support of attorneys across our Commonwealth, will help bring Kentucky one step closer to ensuring that all of its citizens have access to adequate food. Please join the YLD in efforts to raise the equivalent of 600,000 pounds of food from March 27 – April 7, 2017, and #FeedTheFrenzy!” – Young Lawyers Division Chair Rebecca Schafer.
