Food From The Bar

Food From The Bar is a grassroots, nation-wide campaign started by lawyers to fight hunger in the communities where they work and live. During the month of May the Orange County legal community is partnering with Second Harvest in our very own Food From The Bar Campaign to feed the hungry in OC.

We invite you and your firm or legal group to join us in a friendly competition to see who can collect the most food, raise the most funds, and volunteer the most hours to help close the meal gap for more than 335,000 men, women and children who often don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

The competition will begin May 1 and end June 2. Team points are earned for collecting food, raising funds and volunteering at Second Harvest. The competition will be followed by an awards reception held on
June 22, 2017 to honor your contributions.
