March Against Hunger starts in Evansville

Posted: Updated:
INDIANA (WFIE) -

The statewide March Against Hunger food drive kicked off in Evansville Friday evening.

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller joined Feeding Indiana's Hungry and the Indiana State Bar Association to challenge law firms to donate goods and raise money for regional food banks.

The 'Attorney General's Cup' will be presented to winning firms from six categories:

 

  • Sole Proprietor
  • Small firm (2-11 persons)
  • Medium firm (12-21 persons)
  • Large firm (22-49 persons)
  • X-Large Firm (50+ persons)
  • Public/non-profit firm
"Over the years we raised over 182,000," said Zoeller. "It's a significant contribution during a certain period of the year."

In 2013, 52 law groups donated over 10,000 pounds of food and more than $55,000 towards the drive.
