Over the past nine years, law firms, legal organizations, and law schools have participated in the Statewide Legal Food Frenzy and have raised the equivalent of more than 12.7 million pounds of food. A recent study by Feeding America found that almost 1.2 million Virginians are considered “food insecure.” A large number of these individuals are children, senior citizens, disabled adults, and the new face of hunger—individuals who have lost their jobs, are unemployed or underemployed, and are having problems making ends meet. In fact, Virginia’s food banks continue to experience record demand for services.
Last year, ReidGoodwin collected 237lbs of food to help those in need in the Central Virginia area. This year we challenged ourselves to do more, and WE DID! ReidGoodwin collected 350lbs of food, which was delivered to the FeedMore Central Virginia Food Bank.

It is this community that has supported us over the years and the least we can do is give back to the community.
