Cadwalader Celebrates Food Bank For New York City

May 09, 2024

Cadwalader was proud to attend the 2024 Gotham Ball on behalf of Food Bank For New York City! The event marked 41 years of service by Food Bank For New York City.

Food Bank traces its history back to 1983 when the late Jack Fritts, Cadwalder's former chairman, helped to incorporate Food Bank on a pro bono basis. Jack served on Food Bank’s board for many years. In 2018, Food Bank dedicated its Bronx warehouse in his honor, naming the facility “The Jack Fritts Food Distribution Center.”

Cadwalader's own Financial Services partner Lary Stromfeld serves as the Board's Executive Vice Chairman and is the founder of the Justice Served campaign in 2015, which annually brings together more than 20 New York law firms and law departments in a six-week effort that has funded more than 5 million meals for food-insecure New Yorkers.
