JAMS Partners with Food from the Bar to Fight Hunger
Published May 3, 2012
JAMS, the largest private provider of mediation and arbitration services worldwide, is proud to announce it will partner with the Los Angeles Food Bank and the Sacramento Food Bank to fight hunger through the Food from the Bar campaign.
The JAMS locations are participating through their local JAMS Societies. The JAMS Society was created 10 years ago to recognize and support volunteer opportunities and community involvement for JAMS associates at a local, “hands-on” level. JAMS Society members participate in a diverse array of volunteer activities around the country ranging from cleaning up the environment to improving the lives of children and seniors.
Food from the Bar is a four-week food drive by legal communities across the country, in which participants engage in “friendly competition” to raise funds, donate food and volunteer at local food banks. Since its inception 10 years ago, Food from the Bar has raised millions of dollars and donated thousands of hours to food banks across the country. The campaign provides critical funds to support summer food programs and ensures kids receive the nutrition they need to live healthy and productive lives.
The 2012 program runs from April 30 to May 25. In addition to participation from the Los Angeles and Santa Monica JAMS Society Chapters, the JAMS Sacramento Chapter will also work to raise money for the Sacramento Food Bank.
“Food from the Bar is a wonderful campaign that supports a very important cause,” said Chris Poole, JAMS president and CEO. “JAMS is honored to participate and help fight childhood hunger in Los Angeles, Sacramento and beyond.”
