Help MCBA Fight Hunger in Marin
For the last 30 years, the legal community has come together to help end hunger in San Francisco and Marin by supporting the SF-Marin Food Bank through their annual Food From the Bar campaign.

This year, unfortunately, more people than ever are facing food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The SF-Marin Food Bank is currently serving almost twice as many households as before the pandemic.

Please donate whatever you can to support our community. The easiest way to donate is directly through the link below, which will take you to the Marin County Bar Association’s contribution page.

Together we can help our most vulnerable neighbors. Thank you for supporting Food From the Bar 2021.
