Food from the Bar

Food From the Bar 2014

The 2014 Food From the Bar Campaign will run from April 28 - June 6, 2014. Registration will open on March 3 at www.foodfromthebar.org.


 

Each spring The Bar Association of San Francisco and the legal community partners with the SF-Marin Food Bank to fight hunger through the Food From the Bar campaign.

The campaign provides critical funds to support summer food programs that make sure kids get the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives and is the largest and longest running fundraiser for the Food Bank by a single profession.
