AG’s food drive generates $49k for food banks

– Attorney General Greg Zoeller is declaring his March Against Hunger food drive a success.

Zoeller says his charity drive collected $49,000 and roughly 8,200 pounds for state food banks this year.

The sixth annual food drive was held as a competition between 43 other law and nonprofit groups from Indiana and Kentucky. To help coordinate the donations, Zoeller teamed up with the Indiana State Bar Association and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry, which serves as the umbrella organization for 11 regional food banks.

Since 2009, the March Against Hunger food drive competition has generated 52,354 pounds of food and $231,799 in monetary donations for Indiana’s food banks.
