WKW recently participated in The Indiana Attorney General’s March Against Hunger competition. The March Against Hunger is a competition among law firms, law groups and law schools to raise much-needed resources for regional food banks. Participants who collected the greatest amount of food and money during the month of March won the Attorney General’s Cup.
A total of 51 law groups participated this year and raised more than 11,229 pounds of food and $51,172, for a total of 133.5 tons of assistance for our regional food banks! It was a record year with the largest collection of assistance in the history of the March Against Hunger.
During the month of March, our firm collected 436 pounds of food! The U.S. Department of Agriculture estimates that the average person in the United States eats 4.7 pounds of food per day. Using 4.7 pounds of food per day, our donation will feed one person for almost 93 days! We would like to congratulate the winners of the Attorney General’s Cup and applaud everyone’s effort!
Barnes & Thornburg LLP: 946 pounds of food + $16,158
Burke Costanza & Carberry, LLP: 758 pounds of food + $4,075.64
