AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Members of the local legal community will compete by collecting donations to help feed children in need during the summer break.

This year’s Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition will run for two weeks from April 17-28, benefiting the Golden Harvest Food Bank.

All monetary donations are donated directly to the organization’s 11,000-square-mile service area during the summer months.

In 2022, the groups collectively raised $33,056 for the Gold Harvest Food Bank, which equates to more than 99,000 meals.

“1 in 5 children in our area are struggling with hunger, and we couldn’t be more appreciative of the collective efforts of our legal partners in the CSRA for coming together to help us with our mission of making sure that no child goes hungry,” says Amy Breitmann, President & CEO, Golden Harvest Food Bank.

Each year, the Georgia attorney general, the state bar, and the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar collaborates with Feeding Georgia, a network of food banks in the state, to raise funds to help children and their families.

Golden Harvest is a member of the network.

Law firms, legal organizations, corporate or in-house counsel, clerks, and judges are encouraged to sign up. Teams that register for the competition by the early deadline, April 1, will receive bonus points to add to their final score.

Groups will still have the opportunity to register after the early deadline and throughout the duration of the competition.
