The Lafayette Bar Association is excited to partner with Second Harvest Food Bank on the second annual Food from the Bar campaign in Acadiana. Food from the Bar is the legal community’s response to child hunger across the country, in which local firms raise funds, donate food, and volunteer at local food banks. 

Last year, during our inaugural campaign, 18 local firms participated and raised over $10,000 for Second Harvest!

Second Harvest serves communities across 23 parishes in South Louisiana, including Lafayette Parish. Each and every day, nearly 40,000 individuals in Lafayette Parish struggle to access the healthy, nutritious food they need for themselves and their families. Working with our local, community-based partners across the parish, Second Harvest Food Bank helps ensure the basic food needs of families and individuals in our community are met. Second Harvest provides more than 3 million meals to 8,500 individuals, children, and seniors in need each year in Lafayette Parish, and continues to expand its efforts in the region.

We hope that your firm will join us to support this campaign. It’s easy to participate - your firm can help feed hungry families.

* Participate in Food from the Bar from May 16th – June 3rd and collect food & funds at your firm for Second Harvest. It is as simple as sending an email to your office publicizing the campaign and encouraging staff to donate. Second Harvest can set up an online page for your firm to make donating simple & secure.

* Consider a virtual event or prize contest to encourage participation and make it fun for the whole firm.

Your support is needed now more than ever – please join us! Thanks for your consideration.

Please contact Kathryn Gsell with any questions at kgsell@secondharvest.org.
