How It Works

Legal Food Frenzy is going all virtual in 2020 due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Food donations will not be collected for the Legal Food Frenzy this year. Most fundraising will take place online, but any checks collected can be mailed to your food bank at the end of the competition (more information will be sent after your team registers)!

 

Scroll down for the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy timeline and information on registration, scoring, and collecting funds.

Registration

  • Firms and Legal Organizations can sign-up to compete at galegalfoodfrenzy.org/sign-up
  • Sign up by April 1st to earn 100 bonus points!
  • The “Firm Champion” listed should be the designated contact person at your firm or organization. They will receive all competition-related communications and responsible for sharing it with their colleagues. You can add an additional contact as well.
  • List your firm or company name as you would like it on materials.
  • When you sign up, include the total number of employees in your firm or legal organization. If you are in-house legal counsel, you should only count the number of employees in legal department, not the entire company.
  • Firms and Legal Organizations with multiple office locations in Georgia should sign up individually and only count the number of employees in their individual office, so that we can connect them with the correct Food Bank. At the end of the competition, the totals from all of the offices will be aggregated and the firm will compete as a single entity for the AG Cup.
  • Once you register (beginning March 1) we will contact the Firm Champion with additional information and connect you with your regional food bank contact.

Scoring

  • $1 raised = 4 points
  • There are multiple BONUS POINT opportunities:

You will need to provide a link to the post/tweet/etc. on your end of competition campaign form in order to receive credit.

Checks should be mailed to the food bank following the competition.
    • Capital Campaign gifts will not be counted towards your competition totals.
