Competition Runs April 16 -27 Register Today!

The Georgia Legal Food Frenzy is a two-week food and fund drive competition done in partnership with the Georgia Attorney General, the State Bar and YLD, and the Georgia Food Bank Association.

The competition is open EVERYONE in the legal community to see which law firm, legal organization, and corporate/in-house counsel can have the biggest impact on hunger. Everything you raise stays LOCAL and benefits the regional food bank that serves your community.

 

Chris Carr-Official Headshot2

“More than 60 percent of kids in Georgia are eligible for free or reduced meals during the school year. For some of them, this is their only reliable meal, so you can imagine how their families struggle during the summer months when their kids are home without this resource. I am incredibly proud of the Georgia legal community for rising to the occasion and ensuring the food banks are sufficiently stocked to meet this need."

- Attorney General Carr

Hunger in Georgia.

1 in 4 kids in Georgia live in food insecure households, meaning they don't always know where their next meal is coming from.

How you help.

With every $1 you raise, the food banks can distribute $8 worth of groceries into the community. Engage your supervisors, colleagues, clients, friends, and family for the greatest impact!

The Impact.

Georgia's lawyers have raised over $1.5 million for the food banks, the equivalent of over 6 million meals since the start of the Legal Food Frenzy.
