RALEIGH — Campbell Law School has won the 2022 North Carolina Legal Feeding Frenzy beating out perennial winners Wake Forest Law and Duke Law schools, North Carolina Attorney General Josh Stein announced during a virtual ceremony on Wednesday, April 27.
The annual joint program of the N.C. Attorney General’s Office, the North Carolina Bar Association (NCBA)’s Young Lawyers Division, the North Carolina Bar Foundation (NCBF) and the seven statewide Feeding the Carolinas food banks, the competition aims to fight hunger across North Carolina by uniting the legal community in support of local food banks. The “food and fund” drive competition runs annually from March 1-31.
“While we are excited to announce that Campbell Law School has won this year’s Legal Feeding Frenzy, the real winners are the folks who will receive help from the Feeding the Carolinas food banks during these trying times,” Leonard said.
Campbell Law won the law school division coming in with 22,700 total pounds with bonuses, Stein said. “Congratulations to Dean Leonard and his team,” he said during the announcement. “This competition is something we can all do together. Thanks to everyone for all they have done.”
“The legal feeding frenzy is especially important this year, as many local food banks are still struggling to meet the demand caused by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Pro Bono Program Director Jillian Camp ’22. “I want to thank everyone who donated. I am just really happy to know I go to a law school who serves the whole community not just the legal community.”
Stein announced the winners virtually at this link saying this year’s Legal Feeding Frenzy was the most successful yet. “With your help, we were able to donate $225,000.00 (the equivalent of 100,000 pounds of food) to our local Feeding the Carolinas food banks,” he said.
