Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share


Attorneys from around the state raised more than 50 tons of food through the Attorney General’s annual March Against Hunger competition.

Thirty-one law firms and law offices across the state participated in the food-drive competition from March 15 to 31. Lawyers collected food and money to donate to 10 regional food banks.

Competitors were broken into three categories: large firms of 25 attorneys or more; small firms of one to 24 lawyers; and law offices of public or nonprofit attorneys. Barnes & Thornburg won the large-firm division, collecting $10,492 and 1,426 pounds of canned goods and other food items. Rubin & Levin in Indianapolis won the small-firm division by raising $1,045 and 10 pounds of food. The Office of United States Trustee, Indianapolis/Region 10 won the public or nonprofit attorneys category by collecting $520 and 140 pounds of food.

Overall, a total of 6,405 pounds of food was donated, along with another $18,825 in monetary contributions. Using a conversion formula of each dollar being equal to 5 pounds of food, the drive raised the equivalent of 100,525 pounds of food for the regional food banks.

Last year was the first March Against Hunger competition with 45 law offices participating statewide. They donated a total of 10,093 pounds of food, and raised another $28,542.63 in monetary contributions to the effort, said Bryan Corbin, public information officer for the AG’s Office.

  1. Why in the world would someone need a person to correct a transcript when a realtime court reporter could provide them with a transcript (rough draft) immediately?

  2. This article proved very enlightening. Right ahead of sitting the LSAT for the first time, I felt a sense of relief that a score of 141 was admitted to an Indiana Law School and did well under unique circumstances. While my GPA is currently 3.91 I fear standardized testing and hope that I too will get a good enough grade for acceptance here at home. Thanks so much for this informative post.

  3. No, Ron Drake is not running against incumbent Larry Bucshon. That’s totally wrong; and destructively misleading to say anything like that. All political candidates, including me in the 8th district, are facing voters, not incumbents. You should not firewall away any of voters’ options. We need them all now more than ever. Right? Y’all have for decades given the Ds and Rs free 24/7/365 coverage of taxpayer-supported promotion at the expense of all alternatives. That’s plenty of head-start, money-in-the-pocket advantage for parties and people that don’t need any more free immunities, powers, privileges and money denied all others. Now it’s time to play fair and let voters know that there are, in fact, options. Much, much better, and not-corrupt options. Liberty or Bust!

  4. A great idea! There is absolutely no need to incarcerate HRC's so-called "super predators" now that they can be adequately supervised on the streets by the BLM czars.

  5. One of the only qualms I have with this article is in the first paragraph, that heroin use is especially dangerous because it is highly addictive. All opioids are highly addictive. It is why, after becoming addicted to pain medications prescribed by their doctors for various reasons, people resort to heroin. There is a much deeper issue at play, and no drug use should be taken lightly in this category.
