To date, the Legal Food Frenzy has raised the equivalent of more than 14.2 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, the food banks of Virginia have distributed over 139 million pounds of food and grocery products, 40% of it being fresh fruits and vegetables.
Murphy & McGonigle is proud to participate in this much needed program that provides food to those who need it in our community. This year we were able to give the equivalent of more than 25,000 lbs. worth of food.
