BASF and the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks celebrated a record-breaking annual Food From the Bar Campaign at an awards ceremony in July. Food From the Bar is the legal community’s annual fundraising drive to benefit the San Francisco and Marin Food Banks.
Campaign Cochair Christy Richard-son of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, had this to say about the campaign’s success, “Each year our legal community out does itself with our annual Food From the Bar campaign. Our accomplishment in this regard was beyond measure, particularly given the current economic situation. Our legal community rallied to set a new standard of contribution, dedication and enthusiasm, and BASF is particularly proud to be a significant partner in our effort to serve our community.”
The campaign, which ran from April 29 – May 24, included 73 participating organizations in San Francisco and Marin County raising $594,034; collecting 6,721 pounds of food; and contributing 902 volunteer shifts at the food bank. The “Top Fundraising” honor went to, for the sixth year in a row, the Fremont Group, who has raised more money than any other fundraising drive in San Francisco Food Bank history, with an amazing $107,072 raised!
