After a food-filled holiday season, many of us begin the New Year with health-related resolutions. Want to learn more about pro bono efforts designed to fight hunger and increase access to nutritious food for those in need? While eating is on our minds, check out the Law Firm Pro Bono Project’s publication, Pro Bono Food for Thought: Improving Access to Nutrition.
Pro bono efforts designed to support food access and security have the potential to transform a community. Examples include turning an abandoned lot into a productive urban farm and eliminating bureaucratic barriers obstructing food stamp distribution or access to school meal programs. Because this is an emerging area that many people – not just foodies – feel especially passionate about, you may be able to excite and meaningfully engage your attorneys and professional staff, including some who may not have previously been active pro bono participants.
