Vandeventer Black raises over $13K during the Legal Food Frenzy Redux

For the past 18 years, Vandeventer Black LLP has been a proud sponsor of the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. The firm has participated in the statewide food bank fundraising event, ‘Legal Food Frenzy,’ since its inception.

In the past, the Legal Food Frenzy was a points-based competition based on money, food donations, and volunteer time. However, as everyone is aware, 2020 has changed many charitable events. This year’s competition took place as an online money donation campaign, continuing the partnership between the legal community and Virginia’s Food Banks during this difficult time. Several regional Foodbanks in Virginia participated, including the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore.

Considering tightening budgets, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore set a relatively modest goal of $10,000 for this event. Undaunted by the challenges of 2020, the Hampton Roads legal community stepped up to the plate and donated over $30,000 to the local Foodbank.  Vandeventer Black and its employees donated $13,282.

Vandeventer Black attorneys participated in a competition wherein employees could allocate their donations to attorneys throughout the firm. The attorneys with the highest allocations either matched the allocation or received a pie to the face. “Partner Pie Pandemonium (“PPP,” get it?) was a great internal fundraiser and a morale booster for our Team,” said Daniel Salmon, an associate and coordinator of this year’s Legal Food Frenzy Redux. “With the majority of the firm working from home, PPP allowed the firm to come together and what a great way to give back to the local community during these times.”
