Food From The Bar


Food From The Bar, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank, 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 company to join us in a friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds and volunteer the most hours to help close the meal gap for more than 290,000 men, women and children who often don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

The competition runs from May 1st to June 3rd. Team points are earned for raising funds and volunteering at Second Harvest. Please join us for our Awards Reception on June 26, 2019 to celebrate our amazing supporters. Please RSVP to Megan by June 14 at 949-208-3187 or [email protected]
