Food From the Bar

Raizner Slania LLP Helps Gather Food For Houston Food Bank During Food From the Bar

This year Raizner Slania LLP was proud to participate in the Food From the Bar program. Food From the Bar is a month long friendly competition among local law firms and corporate legal departments to raise money, gather food, and donate time to the Houston Food Bank. Because of the devastation of Hurricane Harvey last fall, food from the Houston Food Bank has been even more needed for thousands of Houstonians. Since the inception of the Food From the Bar program in 2016, one of Raizner Slania’s attorneys, Ben Wickert has served on the steering committee. We are very proud of Ben’s involvement, and the firm is honored to help serve our community.

This year marked the 3rd Annual Food From the Bar program, and the legal community of Houston did not disappoint! Law firms and lawyers from across the city came together to help the Houston Food Bank in its mission to feed Houstonians and reduce food waste.

Raizner Slania worked to generate the equivalent of 5,500 meals during the Food From the Bar program, earning the firm a Bronze Partner achievement award. Raizner Slania participated with 37 other legal organizations; and, in total the program raised $200,519, collected 16,196 pounds of food, and donated 2,475 volunteer hours, which generated the equivalent of 763,554 meals for our community.
