NC Legal Feeding Frenzy
North Carolina continues to have one of the highest rates of food insecurity in the nation, especially among our children. For this reason, the Young Lawyers Division of the North Carolina Bar Association, in conjunction with the North Carolina Association of Feeding America Food Banks, host the annual NC Legal Feeding Frenzy in March. Legal professionals from across the state are invited to participate in this fun food drive competition.
