Legal organizations launch campaign in Frankfort to end hunger

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Ending hunger in the Bluegrass state.

Attorney General Andy Beshear announced the Legal Food Frenzy campaign during a rally Tuesday morning in Frankfort.

It's a statewide competition that challenges Kentucky law firms, law schools and legal organizations to donate food and money to help families suffering from hunger.

The Kentucky Association of Food Banks believes it's possible to end hunger in the state.

"Hunger is a deeply entrenched problem in Kentucky. One in six adults have no idea where their next meal will come from and the rate is even worse for children," said Tamara Sandberg, a spokesperson for the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.

The campaign hopes to raise 600,000 pounds of food or $150 between March 27 and April 7 for the summer demand.

The organization or firm that raises the most will win the Attorney General's cup.
