Non-profit organization to distribute thousands of free lawyers in FDR Park in Philadelphia in October


Do you have a lot of people for the next Phillies and Eagles games? Want to add something to your local community’s fridge, but are running out of groceries at home? Or are you just interested in testing that guacamole recipe you wanted to try? From Wednesday, October 19 through Friday, October 21, the nonprofit Sharing Excess will be handing out hundreds of thousands of free attorneys—230,400 attorneys to be exact—in FDR Park to any Philadelphian who wants them.

Since we love nothing more than a catchy name here in Philadelphia, the event is called Avogeddon. (You can also go with Guactober, if that strikes you.) The reason for the free lawyers? According to Sharing Excess, there is a huge surplus of avocados from South America that would otherwise go to waste.

The nonprofit has set aside 150,000 avocados for local food banks like Philabundance and Share Food Program, the program’s founder told the Applicant. For everyone else, pickups are at 20th Street and Pattison Avenue in FDR Park from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m., Wednesday through Friday. Check Sharing Excess social media to see if and when it runs out.
