The 2nd Annual Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy Raises over 630,000 Pounds of Food

During the second-annual Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy, the state’s legal community donated more than 630,000 pounds of food to benefit children in need. The 2018 campaign, which lasted from March 15 through April 2, allowed Kentucky lawyers and legal staff to compete outside the courtroom to donate food and raise funds. Proceeds generated help Kentucky’s seven regional food banks prepare for increased food demand during the summer months. Attorney General Andy Beshear said this year’s competition helps to support the one in 12 children who receive free or reduced-priced lunch during the school year, but do not have access to such meals during the summer. This year, 118 law firms representing more than 2,000 attorneys and staff competed. Beshear’s office contributed the equivalent of 10,825 pounds of food, including monetary donations of almost $1,000. The top prize, the Attorney General’s Cup, went to Frost Brown Todd LLC, raising the  equivalent of 82,365 pounds of food. The Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy is a partnership between the Office of the Attorney General, the Office of the Secretary of State, Kentucky Bar Association Young Lawyers Division and the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.
