Exceeding their fundraising goal and achieving nearly 100% participation, Thompson Coburn’s Washington, D.C. office joined more than 30 of the District’s largest law firms as part of “Food From the Bar 2023,” in support of the Capital Area Food Bank.
The Capital Area Food Bank provides substantial relief to those suffering with food insecurity in the region, providing more than 50 million meals to people in communities across D.C., Maryland, and Virginia.
The firm’s Washington, D.C. team, who get behind the effort each year, raised over $29,000 during the four-week campaign in May, with virtually the entire office taking part. Although the official campaign has ended, donations are still being accepted. Click here to lend your support.
The Capital Area Food Bank reports that there are nearly 250,000 children and young adults experiencing food insecurity in the Greater Washington Area. After exhausting household resources and support from government social welfare programs (including school meals), these individuals still have a 31.5 million annual meal gap.
Thompson Coburn partner and Food From the Bar Executive Committee Member Jeff Newman said that he was “amazed at the generosity of our colleagues – whether it was during a matching opportunity, a gift-card raffle, a tip at the beverage cart or a large contribution seemingly out of nowhere. We should all be proud of our commitment to our community.”
