Annual Food Drive

By splitting its staff into teams, the Law Offices of Michael A. DeMayo, L.L.P. have collected enough food to serve over 200,000 individual meals in its annual food drive.  The donations are received by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina.


Each year, our staff competes against each other to see who can donate the most food. Since starting the program in 2004, our firm has gathered a total of 48,632 pounds of food including financial donations converted to pounds. At the beginning of each competition, Mr. DeMayo agrees to match his employees’ total food contribution and has donated an additional $28,000 to the food bank. This year our firm brought in 6,079 pounds and matched that total with a monetary donation of $6,079.00

With the firm’s monetary and food donations, the food bank has been able to provide more than 218,000 individual meals. The firm collects canned fruits, soups and vegetables, as well as high protein foods including tuna, chicken and  beef.

“Being a part of this annual food drive is one of our favorite community service projects. It’s our way to help alleviate the hunger that many people in our community experience on a daily basis, especially during the holidays,” Mr. DeMayo said.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina serves 19 counties in North and South Carolina. Last year, the food bank distributed more than 33 million pounds of food and essential grocery items to 650 non-profit agencies and churches serving the needy as well as to food banks in other areas.
