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.
