GFBA engages different industries in the fight against hunger during friendly, two-week long food and fund drive competitions held throughout the year. Companies and organizations go head-to-head against their biggest industry rivals to see who can raise the most and have the biggest impact on hunger. Everything they raise stays local and benefits the food bank that serves their community, but the glory is statewide!
Legal Industry – April
Beginning in 2012, GFBA has partnered with the Office of the Attorney General and the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar to take take the drama outside of the courtroom and into the two-week Legal Food Frenzy. Now, hundreds of law firms, legal firms, judges, and law schools across the state compete each year and have cumulatively raised nearly $2 million, the equivalent of 1.6 million meals for the food banks.
