CARY, April 27, 2016 – Attorney General Roy Cooper honored Legal Aid of North Carolina yesterday at the awards ceremony for the 2016 Legal Feeding Frenzy, the legal community’s annual fund- and food-raising drive to benefit the North Carolina Association of Feeding America Food Banks.
Robin Ames (pictured center), an attorney in our Ahoskie office, received the award on Legal Aid’s behalf from Attorney General Cooper, honorary chair of the drive. Legal Aid raised 38 pounds of food per employee and came in first in the inaugural Public Interest category.
Overall, nearly 300,000 pounds of food were collected during this year’s Feeding Frenzy, which ran from March 1-31. The annual drive is run by the North Carolina Bar Association’s Young Lawyers Division.
