2014 Legal Food Frenzy Winners Announced


We are proud to announce the winners of the 8th Annual Statewide “Legal Food Frenzy” food and fund drive competition. This competition, a partnership between the Virginia Bar Association Young Lawyer’s Division and the Federation of Virginia Food Banks,  raised the equivalent of over 1.4 million pounds of food and grocery products. The winners will be celebrated at an awards reception at the Executive Mansion in Richmond on July 22nd.

Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring, the honorary chair of the statewide event, stated in his press release: “It was an honor to continue the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy with our excellent partners in the legal community and the worthy recipients at the Federation of Virginia Food Banks. During this year’s competition I had the chance to visit some of the incredible food bank facilities operated by the Federation and I was again amazed at the work they do every day to meet a serious need in our communities. At a time when donations are down and requests for assistance are up, every contribution can make a real impact in the lives of our fellow Virginians.” We would like to thank all the participants as well as the Federation member food bank staff for another wonderful competition!
