Legal Food Frenzy is Underway!
Friends and colleagues,
The 9th Annual Legal Food Frenzy is officially underway today! We are thrilled that almost 200 firms and organizations have registered to participate. If you have not signed up, it’s not too late. Please visit the website [ galegalfoodfrenzy.org ] and sign up to compete April 20 through May 1.
Our goal this year is to raise $420,000 for Georgia’s eight regional food banks. This will help them meet the demand they are currently experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many families who are typically food secure have been and will continue to be impacted by the economic effects of this outbreak. It is our food banks to whom these families will turn.
We are already on our way to reaching that goal thanks to the generous contributions of Georgia’s law schools, which wrapped up their competition on Feb. 28. I am pleased to announce that the University of Georgia School of Law is this year’s winner, raising $8,927. Collectively, our law school students from five law schools raised $15,761, the equivalent of more than 63,000 meals.
The all-new online fundraising platform will allow us all to participate while abiding by social distancing orders. Let’s continue the momentum generated by our law schools and have our strongest Legal Food Frenzy yet!
