SF and Marin Legal Community Takes on Hunger

May 16, 2017

SAN FRANCISCO/MARIN We’ve all heard of “the long arm of the law”, but we at the Food Bank would rather talk about the “big hearts” of the law!

In the month of May we mark 26 years of our successful “Food From The Bar” campaign. In that time the San Francisco and Marin County legal community has come together to help raised enough funds for 19 Million meals. This year we’re aiming for 2 Million more!

Join us on May 16th as attorneys from several competing firms gather inside our San Francisco warehouse for a special night of volunteering.

WHO: 60+ Attorneys from firms including Munger Tolles and Olsen, Keker & Van Nest, Keegin Harrison, and FTI Consulting.

WHAT: Watch as these attorneys roll up their sleeves and help pack food for their neighbors in need.

WHERE: 900 Pennsylvania Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94107

WHEN: May 16th – 6pm to 8pm

WHY: These firms are heavily invested in the community, and our mission to end hunger in San Francisco in Marin. Members are also competing for “Food From The Bar” points, and thus competition bragging rights!

About the San Francisco-Marin Food Bank
The San Francisco-Marin Food Bank’s mission is to end hunger in San Francisco and Marin, where one in four neighbors is at risk of hunger. We envision a community where everyone is able to obtain enough nutritious food in a dignified manner to support the health and well-being of themselves and their families. We address hunger head on: from our pantry network and home-delivered groceries, to our nutrition-education classes and food-stamp enrollment, we work in many ways to nourish and empower neighbors in need. Every week, 30,000 households count on us for food assistance. Nearly 60 percent of what we distribute is fresh fruits and vegetables. Learn more at www.sfmfoodbank.org.
