Attorneys General launch March Against Hunger

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Attorneys General in Kentucky and Indiana have launched the fifth annual March Against Hunger food drive competition at the Dare to Care Food Bank in Louisville.

The food drive started Thursday challenges attorneys and law firms to compete to see which firm can donate the most food to regional food banks.

Dare to Care is one of 11 regional food banks that partner with Feeding Indiana's Hungry or FIsH. That's an organization that helps link Indiana's resources to feed those in need. In 2012, 51 law firms participated in the March Against Hunger food drive and donated more than 11,400 pounds of food and raised $51,822.

Since 2009, food drive participants have donated more than 34,100 pounds of food and raised $127,167.
