AG's food drive raises more than 140,000 pounds of food

May 5, 2011

Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s March Against Hunger challenge among law firms has raised the equivalent of nearly 144,000 pounds of food for needy Hoosiers.

Fifty law firms in Indiana and Kentucky participated in the challenge and raised more than 6,000 pounds of food and $27,574, which combined is the equivalent of 72 tons of assistance, according to the attorney general’s office. Every dollar raised was counted as five pounds of food.

For the third year, Zoeller partnered with the Indiana State Bar Association and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry to raise donations to benefit 11 regional food banks.

This year, Barnes & Thornburg in Indianapolis won in the large firm category; Fleschner Stark Tanoos & Newlin in Terre Haute won in the medium-sized firm category; Tuesley Hall Konopa in South Bend won in the small firm category; and the Department of Justice/Office of the U.S. Trustee in Indianapolis won in the public/nonprofit firm category.
