Around 1 in 5 children are food insecure in North Carolina, and over 1.4 million North Carolinians – from children to seniors – face food insecurity and hunger in our state. The NCBA YLD’s Legal Feeding Frenzy is an opportunity for our legal community to come together to fight hunger across North Carolina and in your local communities. Running for the month of March, the Legal Feeding Frenzy is a food and funds drive competition to see who can raise the most food per employee to benefit local Feeding the Carolinas food banks. By donating to the food banks within our state, your dollars go further. Every dollar helps provide five meals.

Law firms, solo practitioners, law schools, and corporate counsel are all encouraged to participate! Teams must pre-register here. Get your team together, and register today!

In addition to donating, the Legal Feeding Frenzy also provides our legal community the opportunity to volunteer at your local food banks. Join us at our kickoff event on February 25 from 1 to 3 p.m. at the local food bank in Raleigh – Food Bank of Central & Eastern Carolina, 1924 Capital Blvd., Raleigh, NC 27604! 1,000 pounds of food will be awarded as a bonus to each team that has an attendee at the kickoff event on February 25. Please contact Spencer Fritts at [email protected] to reserve space for you and your firm.

Not in Raleigh but still want to volunteer? If your firm is interested in coordinating a volunteer event, we can help with that, too. Teams that organize and participate in an on-site volunteer opportunity at a food bank between March 1-31 will receive 2,000 bonus pounds. Contact Spencer Fritts at [email protected] for assistance in planning and to receive credit for your participation.

The following bonus pounds will also be awarded:

  • 1,000 bonus pounds to teams that register before February 18.
  • 100 bonus pounds to teams that register between February 19 and February 28.
  • 300 bonus pounds to teams that post or share information about #NCLFF22 and/or food insecurity in North Carolina on social media (LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) at least one time (we encourage more) from March 1 to March 31.*

*To receive credit, you must email a screenshot of your post, with the timestamp, to [email protected].

After March 1, visit NC Legal Feeding Frenzy to donate and keep an eye on your competition. We look forward to another year of working together to fight food insecurity in our state!
