New York City’s Legal Community Mobilizes for 9th Annual Justice Served Campaign

The Firm is proud to be one of the founding members of the Justice Served hunger relief campaign, an important initiative of Food Bank For New York City, one of our oldest pro bono clients.

Partner Lary Stromfeld conceived of Justice Served in 2015 and has been chairing this NYC legal industry-wide campaign ever since. Our relationship with Food Bank For New York City traces back to our former chairman and managing partner, the late Jack Fritts, who helped found Food Bank and was instrumental in its growth and success. He incorporated Food Bank in 1983 and served in various Board roles over the years. In 2018, Food Bank dedicated its Bronx warehouse in his honor, naming the facility “The Jack Fritts Food Distribution Center.”

Since its inception, Justice Served has raised funds for more than five million meals for food-insecure New Yorkers. Running from February 5 through March 15, over 30 New York law firms and law departments are participating this year.

Outside of New York, the Firm has participated in the North Carolina Bar Association’s “Legal Feeding Frenzy,” as well as “Food From The Bar DC.” Similar to Justice Served, these campaigns invite their respective legal communities to help fight food insecurity. And in London, we recently helped Food Bank Aid reach its goal of £1.25 million to support its 31 food banks across North London and Hertfordshire.
