Georgia Legal Food Frenzy Testimonials
"I am honored to be participating in the Food Frenzy for the eleventh (11th) time. There is simply no better way to put my resources and contacts to use than to help raise money for families, most importantly children, who do not know where their next meal is coming from. And, candidly, I am not aware of any organization that does a better job of getting donations and contributions into the hands of those in need."
Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin, LLC
"At Bovis Kyle, we understand that food insecurity is an issue that plagues many in our communities, whether temporary or long-term. Our goal is to assist those within our community who are unsure about from where their next meal will come. The Legal Food Frenzy, specifically, comes at a time when many school children are about to be without the availability of school meals, which makes these efforts even more crucial. We are thrilled to be able to participate in the Legal Food Frenzy annually and do our part to feed our community."
