This spring, the Berkshire Bar Association is proud to take part in Legal Food Frenzy a food and fund collection competition to support The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. The competition will be held from April 6th – 17th.

The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts believes everyone has a right to healthy food regardless of their circumstances. Serving Berkshire, Franklin, Hampden and Hampshire counties, the Food Bank is the leader of the region’s emergency food network, distributing nutritious food to households with lower incomes through their large network shelters, pantries, and meal sites. Every $1 donated to the Food Bank provides 3 meals to our neighbors in need.

We will be competing against Bar Associations and District Attorney’s Offices throughout western Massachusetts to collect the most funds to win the coveted “Legal Food Frenzy Cup” and we need your support. Join us in raising funds over the two-week competition by organizing a fund and food drive in your office, or by donating directly to our team’s online fundraising page (which can be found here) . If you send checks by mail, be sure to indicate you would like the donation to go toward our Legal Food Frenzy Team.

We hope you’ll consider supporting this exciting competition within our legal community! Attached you will find written directions on how to submit donations as well as ideas to engage with your staff on this event.
