Katelyn Doering, a rising 2L at Notre Dame Law School, is passionate about the issue of food security. So, when she donated to the 2020 March Against Hunger during the spring semester, she also shared the link with her classmates.
The class’s donations led to Notre Dame Law School being named the winner in March Against Hunger’s public/nonprofit/local bar/law school category.
March Against Hunger is a competition for lawyers across the state of Indiana to raise money for Indiana’s 11 regional food banks in the month of March. The competition is sponsored by the Indiana State Bar Association, along with the Office of the Indiana Attorney General and Feeding Indiana’s Hungry.
“As a Hoosier, the ISBA’s effort appealed to me because food security is crucial to a successful community,” said Doering, who is from Indianapolis. “The food banks affiliated with Feeding Indiana’s Hungry are respected community institutions that work hard to provide assistance to many people in need, especially during this difficult year.”
Since 2009, March Against Hunger has generated 70,019 pounds of food and $407,873.68 in monetary donations.
