Beechler Tomberlin Sponsors 2018 Legal Feeding Frenzy

The law firm of Beechler Tomberlin is proud to sponsor and participate in the 2018 Legal Feeding Frenzy—a food and fund drive competition among all North Carolina law firms, law schools, and organizations to assist Feeding The Carolinas’ Food Banks.

Over 1.8 million North Carolinian’s are considered “food insecure,” one of the highest rates in the country, according to a recent study by Feeding America. Many of these individuals are children, senior citizens, and disabled adults. Sadly, North Carolina has one of the highest rates of children under age five experiencing a lack of adequate food; nearly one in four. In fact, North Carolina’s food banks continue to experience record demand for services. In 2015-16 alone, the food banks in the Carolina’s distributed nearly 182 million pounds of food and grocery products; the equivalent of over 204 million meals.

In response to this urgent need, the Office of the Attorney General, The Young Lawyers Division of the North Carolina Bar Association, the North Carolina Bar Foundation, and Feeding The Carolinas’ have joined efforts to create the North Carolina Legal Feeding Frenzy.
