Food From The Bar

The Association for Women Attorneys is pleased to offer your organization a great opportunity to become a valuable sponsor of the 7th Annual New Orleans Food from the Bar Campaign. Food from the Bar is the legal community’s response to child hunger across the country, in which participants raise funds, donate food, and volunteer at local food banks.

It’s simple: No one should go hungry in our community, but in South Louisiana, 1 in 3 children live in poverty and don’t have access to the food they need to grow and thrive. It’s especially challenging during summer months, when kids lose access to the breakfast and lunch programs they normally use at school and donations at the food bank are typically slow.

You can do something about it. Food from the Bar will again support Second Harvest by donating food & funds through our “Food & Funds Challenge”. Our support will help the food bank distribute wholesome foods throughout the summer and beyond to ensure that children and families get the nutrition they need.

Second Harvest Food Bank is leading the fight against hunger in South Louisiana by providing food access, advocacy, education, and disaster response. Through food distribution programs, community kitchen meal services, nutrition education, and public benefits assistance, Second Harvest is helping to create pathways out of poverty. Every year, the food bank distributes millions of pounds of food and ensures that meals make it to the dinner tables of thousands of families struggling with hunger in South Louisiana.

In 2017, we raised $40,000 to support Second Harvest and we hope to raise even more this year. Your firm’s sponsorship of the 7th Annual New Orleans Food from the Bar Campaign would be greatly appreciated. We will host a kick-off event in mid-July.
