Biggam Fox Skinner Proudly Supports Vermont Foodbank During Hunger Action Month

Biggam Fox Skinner, your trusted team of Vermont workers’ compensation lawyers, believes in giving back to the communities we live and work in. This month, we focused on the Vermont Foodbank to observe and support Hunger Action Month. Studies by the Foodbank and Feeding America show that one-in-four Vermonters turns to food shelves and meal service programs to feed themselves and their families. That’s around 153,000 of our neighbors, community members, and friends, including more than 33,000 children and 26,000 seniors.

“Lawyers Fighting Hunger” Food Drive

Our firm knew we had to work hard to make a positive difference. We collected 88 pounds of food and $500 for a statewide food drive organized by Vermont Attorney General TJ Donovan. We personally delivered our donations to the Vermont Foodbank during our volunteer work on the morning of September 26th, 2018. During the two weeks of the Lawyers Fighting Hunger food drive, the Vermont legal community raised over $12,700 and collected more than 3,000 shelf-stable, non-perishable food items. All food and funds collected went directly to the Vermont Foodbank and over two hundred Vermont Foodbank-partner food shelves and meal sites around Vermont.

Vermont Foodbank Volunteer Morning

During our biannual work morning at the Foodbank, we filled 490 boxes for the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). The total amounted to 16,170 pounds of food, or 13,475 nourishing meals! Each box contains cereal, milk, juice, beans, rice, beef stew, canned vegetables, and canned fruit. The Foodbank will deliver the boxes to 490 older Vermonters who struggle to get through the month due to financial issues. We feel great knowing it was a morning well spent!
