FOOD FROM THE BAR UPDATE Suzanne Lawler, Accounting Manager Stein & Lubin LLP Annually, the San Francisco Food Bank, in partnership with the Bar Association of San Francisco, taps into the charitable side of law firms, challenging them to raise money, volunteer hours, and make contributions of food through the Food from the Bar campaign. Food from the Bar is specifically designed to provide breakfasts to underprivileged children in the City during the Summer months. These children would normally be provided with a healthy breakfast at summer school, which has been eliminated due to budget cuts. Do you know that 1 in 5 children in San Francisco – one of the world’s wealthiest cities – misses at least one meal a day? At a time when the House is considering cutting food programs for the elderly, pregnant women and children in need (H.R. 2112), the services of the San Francisco Food Bank – now in its 20th year are more important than ever. Audrey Wulff, Kim Coates, Corki Recht, Suzanne Lawler, Joe Galante This year’s Food from the Bar goal was to raise $430,000, collect 20,000 pounds of food and get 900 volunteer shifts. End results were $513,783 (a whopping 20% over goal!), 13,386 pounds of food and 700 volunteer shifts. On June 22, the Food Bank and BASF held their Food from the Bar Awards and Recognition Reception for its 2011 campaign. Thirty-seven Golden Gate Chapter firms participate in this worthy event this year!
