Help our D.C. office help those at risk of hunger

May 18, 2017

When $1 can purchase 2.5 nutritious meals for a senior, a child, or a family in need, we can all afford to turn out our pockets and help eliminate hunger in our communities. Thompson Coburn’s Washington, D.C. office is doing just that this month as part of Food From the Bar, the D.C. legal community’s favorite month-long fundraiser to benefit the Capital Area Food Bank

Thompson Coburn’s  attorneys and staff compete with other law D.C. firms, law schools and legal organizations to earn the most points by raising money, collecting food donations and volunteering at the food bank. Last year we  raised nearly $15,000. This year we want to meet that goal again. 

D.C. partner Tim Sullivan is the co-chair of this year’s Food From the Bar campaign, and he will do anything to drum up donations for this critical cause. 

The FFTB campaign focuses on raising funds to help feed children who receive free healthy meals at school and are at risk of hunger during the summer months. One hundred percent of the money raised goes toward the food bank’s programs and services.  

The Capital Area Food Bank annually feeds 540,000 people in the Washington metro area through a network of 444 food assistance partners and distributes 42 million pounds of food, one-third of which is fresh fruits and vegetables.
