“The Legal Food Frenzy is a great opportunity for Georgia lawyers to challenge each other outside the courtroom for a noble cause – reducing hunger in Georgia. I was thrilled by the tremendous response to last year’s competition and look forward to an even more successful drive this year. I encourage each and every lawyer in Georgia to join us in lending a helping hand to our less fortunate neighbors.” – Attorney General Sam Olens
“The legal community is proud to help provide food to the thousands of Georgians who are in need. We look forward to the State Bar’s fifth year of participation in this worthwhile project and hope to exceed this year’s goal of 1.3 million pounds of food – making a cumulative total of 5 million pounds of food in the first five years of the program. I challenge all of Georgia’s lawyers and voluntary bar associations to get involved and develop new ways to generate donations of food and resources for the 2016 Legal Food Frenzy.” – State Bar of Georgia President Robert “Bob” Kauffman 
“The State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division is proud to partner with the Georgia Food Bank Association and the Office of the Attorney General in promoting its fifth annual Legal Food Frenzy. This YLD program provides Georgia lawyers an opportunity to further their commitment to community service, while giving relief to local children and families who need food assistance.” – State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division President Jack Long
