Organizers of Virginia’s annual Legal Food Frenzy say they’ve postponed the food drive to the fall. A specific date is yet to be named.
The drive to gather food and financial contributions for food banks had been scheduled for April 20-May 1.
“While the need for food and funds across our state has never been greater, due to the current state of uncertainty and the governor’s directive to stay home, we do not feel it is the best time for our legal offices and law schools to run a state-wide competition,” a statement read.
The Food Frenzy is sponsored by the Virginia Bar Association Young Lawyers Division, the Virginia Federation of Food Banks, and the Office of the Attorney General. Legal offices compete in various categories to gather the most contributions.
“In the meantime, Virginia’s food banks are working hard to put in place new policies and protocols to deal with this unprecedented situation,” the organizers said. “If you are looking for ways to help and are able to make a financial donation to your local food bank at this critical time, please do so here: https://vafoodbanks.org/donate-to-virginia-foodbanks/.”
