Supporting the poor and hungry during COVID-19

Lawyers Feed the Hungry, even more than before, is a critical resource for those with little or no options for nutritious meals.

Serving almost 1,200 meals a week is demanding at the best of times. The COVID-19 pandemic just made it more challenging.

While Lawyers Feed the Hungry continues to serve meals through a modified take-out service in Toronto and other centres, their fundraising revenues have been severely disrupted. The program is facing significant financial challenges from the loss of key revenue sources; events have been cancelled and on-site sponsorships deferred.

Donations from lawyers and paralegals across Ontario have sustained the work of Lawyers Feed the Hungry for 22 years. They need your support now more than ever.

If you are able to, please consider donating today.

With your help, Lawyers Feed the Hungry will continue to provide warm meals and a welcoming atmosphere for those in need.

Lawyers Feed the Hungry is 100% donor funded. Learn more about the program.
