Law firms and corporate legal departments are stepping up to support Justice Served, a campaign by the NYC legal community to support hunger-relief programs of the Food Bank for New York City.

The 2016 campaign provided more than 300,000 meals in its inaugural year, including 40,000 kosher-for-Passover meals.

“I am extremely proud of the role that the founding member firms played in the remarkable success of Justice Served in 2016,” said Lary Stromfeld, a partner at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft and founder of Justice Served, in a statement. “The support of the legal community has been so strong that we have set even higher expectations for our 2017 campaign.”

So far, participating law firms for the 2017 campaign, which starts Wednesday and runs through March 17, include Alston & Bird; Cadwalader; Jones Day; Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel; O’Melveny & Myers; Ropes & Gray, Sidley Austin; and White & Case.

The law departments of Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo, as well as Goldman Sachs, are sponsors. The New York Law Journal is a media sponsor.

“The legal community’s continued support exhibited through Justice Served is a great example of how everyone can participate in the fight to end hunger,” Food Bank president and CEO Margarette Purvis said.

The Justice Served campaign welcomes contributions through donations, volunteers and promotion within the legal community. The Food Bank can customize on-site awareness sessions and volunteer opportunities.
