Hensley Legal Group partners with Gleaners Food Bank to help ensure Hoosiers across the State have food to eat. We believe strongly that it is our duty to help those in need, and enjoy volunteering at Gleaners every chance we get. June 2019 was our most recent volunteering experience with them.
After orientation we donned our orange volunteer vests and got ready for customers. Some of us stocked shelves, others bagged and boxed groceries for customers, and the strongest of us carried groceries out to waiting cars.
Our group helped out at at Gleaners’ Community Cupboard on Indy’s south side. The Community Cupboard is stocked with healthy produce and staples and serves thousands of hungry Hoosier families every month. If you’d like to donate or volunteer for an upcoming shift, all info can be found on their website.
2015 March Against Hunger Food & Fund Drive
March Against Hunger is a friendly competition between law firms to raise the most donations – either of non-perishable foods or direct monetary contributions – for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks. The drive runs from March 1-31. We had the opportunity to volunteer for the drive.
In 2014 Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s March Against Hunger food drive competition generated $49,177 and 8,188 pounds of food for the state’s food banks this year.
The sixth annual food drive competition was between 43 participating law and nonprofit groups from Indiana and Kentucky. To help coordinate the donations, Zoeller teamed up with the Indiana State Bar Association (ISBA) and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry (FIsH) which serves as the umbrella organization for 11 regional food banks.
