LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- The attorneys general of Kentucky and Indiana are hoping that their lawyers' competitive natures will help them feed the hungry here in Kentuckiana.
Jack Conway and Greg Zoeller were at the Dare to Care Food Bank on Thursday, Feb. 28, to kick off the Fifth Annual March Against Hunger.
Law firms in both states will compete against each other to see which firm can donated the most food to regional food banks.
Dare to Care serves eight counties in Kentucky and five in Southern Indiana and all food and money raised locally will stay local.
"Here in Kentuckiana, we take care of one another and that's why Attorney General Zoeller and I are here together today to challenge lawyers in both of our states to work together and to fight against hunger," Jack Conway, (D) Kentucky attorney general, said.
"The competitive nature of lawyers is one of the things that drives this challenge. Lawyers like to win, right Jack?" Greg Zoeller, (R) Indiana attorney general, said.
The top firm in each of six categories that collects the most donations will get a special trophy.
Last year, 51 law firms donated more than 11,000 pounds of food -- and raised more than $51,000.
