Lawyers Fill the Food Bank Challenge - 2020 Results

Jul 10 2020

The results from this year's Lawyers Fill the Food Bank Challenge have been revealed and Ridout & Maybee LLP is pleased to announce that we have placed First in the "Small Firm" category in our Ottawa office.

Organized by the County of Carleton Law Association and spearheaded by Mitch Kitagawa (Kelly Santini LLP), this annual challenge brings together firms of different sizes in Ottawa to raise funds for the Ottawa Food Bank. Along with monetary donations, contributions of non-perishable goods are also donated to the challenge to help those in need in the National Capital Region.

Did you Know?:

  • 36% of food bank recipients are children
  • 114 local agencies help feed 38,400 people each month.
  • 34% of food bank clients required assistance at least once every month, a further sign that food banks are becoming part of everyday survival strategies.

Overall results between all firms for 2020:

  • $30,824 raised
  • 2,500 lbs of food collected

Thank you to all at Ridout & Maybee LLP who participated in the challenge!
