Attorney General Greg Zoeller joined forces once again in 2014 with the Indiana State Bar Association and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) for the 6th annual March Against Hunger food drive.

March Against Hunger is a friendly competition between law firms and groups to raise the most donations – either of non perishable foods or direct monetary contributions – for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks. The drive will ran from March 1-31.

“I am very proud of the members of my profession who step up – and in a big way – to help put food on the tables of those struggling in our state,” Zoeller said. “By increasing our efforts again this year we will help families who continue to struggle and are in need of the most basic necessities.”

In 2013, 52 law groups participated in March Against Hunger and raised 10,065 pounds of food and $55,455 – which is the equivalent of 287,340 pounds or 143 tons of food. Overall, the program has raised a total of 44,166 pounds of food and $182,622 for a total of 477 tons in assistance since 2009.

Zoeller presented the 2013 Attorney General’s Cup to the biggest donating firms in six categories:
