2015 News & Events

Monthly Giving 

Every week Toronto lawyers connect with hundreds of people through the Feed the Hungry program. Because of the commitment of 100 volunteers and donations made through the Law Society Foundation, 4 hot meals are provided each week, all year round, to those in need. Toronto lawyers should be very proud of this important program that is put on in our names! 

The Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry program fills a critical need in the city and demands on the program continue to rise. Unfortunately, despite the increase in the number of guests, donations to the program have declined. As a result, the program is strained financially. Some emergency fundraising initiatives have had to be undertaken recently to ensure that the program could be sustained. 

Toronto lawyers can provide much needed stability to the Feed the Hungry program so that it is never at risk again. If every Toronto lawyer contributes $5 each month, the program could be sustained at its current level of service without any additional fundraising initiatives.

The detailed message from the Law Society Foundation with a link to their donation website is available here.

I hope you will join me in supporting this worthwhile cause.

Toronto Lawyers Association Trustee

Billiards with the Bar: Chalk One up Against Hunger

Tuesday, October 21, 2014 
6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. 
Chalkers Pub Billiards Bistro, 247 Marlee Ave


On behalf of the hosts of this event – Neuberger & Partners LLP, Hull & Hull LLP, Toronto Lawyers Association and The Law Society Foundation - we are hoping that you will reserve Tuesday, October 21, 2014 as an evening to support the Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry Program.  


As you may know, feeding people in need is the goal of the Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry program, which is funded by the Law Society Foundation (charitable registration no. 11924 1719 RR0001).  The program launched in 1998 by providing meals once a week. Today, the program serves meals four times a week.  Each month, the Toronto Lawyers Feed the Hungry Program provides over 3,500 meals through the Osgoode Hall cafeteria. The cost to run the program, which provides approximately 45,000 meals a year, is almost $350,000 annually.

The generosity of lawyers and their firms has played a key role in this program's ability to help those in need in Toronto. We need your financial support through the Billiards evening to help this program continue its good work.  With over 90 cents of every dollar raised going directly to the operation of the program, your contribution goes a long way.  

Sustainability is the challenge with an ever growing demand for this program.  Lawyers Feed the Hungry plays a vital role in the downtown core, helping individuals and families trapped on the edge.  Plan to assist this worthy cause by participating in our Billiards evening, or by being a contributor in support of the event.  All contributors will be acknowledged at the event and will receive a letter from the Law Society Foundation for business expense purposes. 

Casual attire  Tickets: $90 each 
Food included, cash bar


Bid on interesting and fun items at the Silent Auction.

As lawyers practicing in Toronto, we can be proud of our role in helping our City’s most vulnerable.  Please be a part of this event in support of our own charity – a program that is in ever increasing need of your financial support.
