Lawyers Fighting Hunger Food Drive

September 14, 2017

September has been designated National Hunger Action Month by the Vermont Foodbank, and to raise awareness and fight hunger in Vermont, Attorney General T.J. Donovan announced the start of the 1st Annual “Lawyers Fighting Hunger Food Drive.” The Lawyers Fighting Hunger Food Drive is a collaboration between the Office of the Attorney General, the Vermont Bar Association and the Vermont Foodbank and will run from September 15th through 30th. Thirty Vermont law firms and law offices have signed up in advance to participate in this first-ever event. “Every day, Vermonters are being forced to make tough choices to keep food on the table,” said Attorney General Donovan. “People are having to choose between paying for food or paying for the costs of living, housing and transportation. It is a privilege to practice law in Vermont and as lawyers, I believe it is our duty to help those in need when we can. I am happy to join with the Vermont Bar Association, Vermont Foodbank and so many Vermont law firms and offices to try and help.”
