Food from the Bar fights Hunger in Houston

Houston Food Bank’s First Annual Food from the Bar is a Hit

Food from the Bar raises over $96k for the Local Food Bank

While this year marks the inaugural Houston Food Bank Food from the Bar, the organization has been around for 25 years now. Local law firms, and legal teams donate food, money, or volunteer hours in hopes of benefiting their local food bank.

The month long food dive was sponsored this year by Brooke Companies, US Legal Support, Copy source One, and Vinson & Elkins LLC. A total of 24 legal organizations gathered for the drive, and managed to raise $96,061, collected 5,066 pounds of food and donated 1,366 volunteer hours (418 volunteer shifts). That equals out to 374,378 meals for the Houston Food Bank!  Great job, guys! Here’s hoping to next year’s numbers are even better than this first year!
