From April 29 to May 10, 76 legal organizations in Massachusetts participated in a competition to help end hunger in our communities by collecting food items and raising funds. The 4th Annual Legal Food Frenzy (LFF), organized by Attorney General Martha Coakley’s office raised a total of $117,655, and 8,761 pounds of food for Massachusetts food banks, enough to provide 282,833 meals for those in need. “The need for food and donations is significant and constant year-round,” AG Coakley said. “Through the generosity of the legal community we were able to collect the equivalent of more than 474,000 pounds of food, the most in the history of our four year competition. We hope that this statewide effort will again help residents and families throughout the Commonwealth put food on the table, and we welcome those who are able to assist.” In Eastern Massachusetts, 54 legal organizations raised $101,129 and collected 4,457 pounds of food, which will enable The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB) to provide 241,295 meals for children and families facing hunger in our communities.
