Bryant Law collects donations for food bank

Staff report

The Bryant Law Center collected more than 4,000 pounds of food and $1,446 for the Purchase Area Development District Food Bank during the Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy fund drive. To match donations, the Bryant Law Center gave $4,058.

"The generosity of the people in our community truly showed through their giving," said Mark Bryant, attorney and president of the Bryant Law Center.

"People gave not only money but carts full of groceries. We were so impressed by the amount of giving that our firm chose to donate $1 for every pound of food donated instead of the original 25 cents."

The Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy is a statewide fund drive competition among Kentucky law firms, law schools, and legal organizations to support members of the Kentucky Association of Food Banks.

"It has been moving and overwhelming watching the generosity of the attorneys in our area and across Kentucky who have participated the Kentucky Legal Food Frenzy fund drive," said Clay Black, Purchase Area Development District commodity & food bank coordinator.

"I cannot begin to thank the entire staff of the Bryant Law Center for their time and donations. ... This is the largest fund drive of its kind in our area and will provide food to the local food pantries who constantly struggle to acquire food."

More than 700,000 Kentuckians, including 200,000 children, struggle with hunger. To help feed needy families and underprivileged individuals, the Commodity and Food Bank Programs provide food and non-food products to the Purchase Area community.

Products are distributed through nonprofit organizations such as needlines, food pantries, and community kitchens.

The Purchase Area Development District Food Bank serves more than 30 organizations and eight counties: Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graces, Hickman, Marshall and McCracken.
