"Legal Food Frenzy"

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli announced earlier this week that Virginia's legal community joined together to raise more than 1.7 million pounds of food for Virginia's hungry during April. The fourth annual "Legal Food Frenzy" broke previous fund raising records by bringing in 36 tons more than in 2009. The statewide competition is sponsored by the attorney general's office and pitted 197 firms against each other. The food donated to the Virginia food banks is especially helpful during this critical time as food banks around Virginia are seeing a surge in the number of families who need food during this difficult economic recession.

Schettine & Nguyen from Richmond raised the most food per employee to win the "Attorney General's Cup" for the third year in a row. The law firm has 13 employees and raised almost 6,881 pounds of food per person. The contest ran April 5 through April 16 and was open to all lawyers, their staffs, and members of the legal community across Virginia.

I'm particularly glad to see lawyers doing something for the community, and I've laid off of the lawyer jokes for this posting.
