We are asking a few of our key partners and colleagues to start a Legal Food Frenzy fundraiser to support Georgia Mountain Food Bank's mission to end local hunger.
In its 8th year, Georgia Legal Food Frenzy is a joint effort by the Young Lawyers Division, the Attorney General's Office and the Georgia Food Bank Association. Georgia Legal Food Frenzy invites Georgia lawyers to challenge each other outside the courtroom during the statewide food and fund drive benefiting the State's eight regional food banks. The food and monetary contributions collected by Georgia Mountain Food Bank during Legal Food Frenzy stay in the region, helping to serve more than 67 of the Food Bank's partner agencies throughout the service area of Hall, Dawson, Forsyth, Union and Lumpkin counties. For every dollar raised, the Food Bank can provide 5 local meals.
This year, the competition will take place April 22- May 3.
"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
By hosting an online fundraiser during Legal Food Frenzy, you will help us provide nutritious meals to the nearly 1 in 5 Georgians who live in food insecure homes and face the threat of hunger every day. What's more, your contributions help support Georgia Mountain Food Bank's outreach programs such as the Food Prescription Boxes, Mobile Food Pantry, Neighborhood Fresh Grocery Delivery Program and others that engage our community in education and service.
Starting an online fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference here in your community. That's a cause we can all support!
