Munger, Tolles & Olson won the Grand Champion Award in the 2018 Los Angeles Food From the Bar Campaign. The firm also was recognized with the Kick-off and Finish Line Awards at a reception held on June 28, 2018.
The Los Angeles Regional Food Bank hosts the Food From the Bar campaign annually and brings together law firms, law schools and legal services organizations. It aims to see who can raise the most money to help combat childhood hunger in Los Angeles County. Munger, Tolles & Olson is a longtime supporter of the campaign and one of its largest fundraisers.
Food From the Bar raised $500,000 in 2018, bringing the campaign’s 10-year total to more than $4,000,000. This year’s fundraising total provides more than two million meals to the one-in-four children in the community that are lacking access to sufficient food.
Munger, Tolles & Olson attorney and Food From the Bar Steering Committee Member Kathleen M. McDowell and her colleagues William D. Temko and Bobby Malhotra accepted the trophy on behalf of the firm.
