Formal Friday: Food From the Bar!

Presenting… Food From the Bar with the Alameda County Community Food Bank!

“Every May, law firms and members of the legal community come together for a friendly competition—Food From The Bar—to help end summer hunger for children in Alameda County.

Food From The Bar comes at a critical time. Families who receive free and reduced-price meals at school are faced with a meal gap once school is out. Your participation directly supports local families facing hunger—this summer and year-round.”

This year, the Food Bank has an important goal to reach: raise enough to provide 60,000 meals.

As part of our ongoing Social Responsibility & Volunteering program, today we at Everlaw dressed to impress! For every person dressed in formal attire, Everlaw donated $25 to the food bank. Everyone looked smashing and had a great time. Formal was of course subject to personal interpretation, and interpret it we did. There were suits, fur stoles, a fascinator, bow ties, ties over t-shirts, you name it.

But silliness aside, join the legal community in providing local children and their families with the healthy food they need to stay nourished throughout the summer. Every $1 donated helps provide $7 worth of food.
