Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced today that Coleman Talley LLP won the medium firm category in the Georgia Legal Food Frenzy competition, an annual statewide effort among the legal community to raise money for Georgia’s food banks. Coleman Talley raised $54,750 for Second Harvest of South Georgia, which is the equivalent of 440,000 meals. This year’s effort is another record-breaking total for the firm at a time when food banks are still experiencing increased demand due to COVID-19. Thanks to generous contributions from attorneys, staff, clients, and friends, Coleman Talley achieved its tenth consecutive win and surpassed cumulative donations of more than a quarter of a million dollars to the food bank since the onset of the competition in 2012.
“Coleman Talley is a proud supporter of Second Harvest of South Georgia in their fight against hunger throughout our region,” said Partner Bill Holland, who has been a Second Harvest of South Georgia Board Member for over 20 years. “Their hunger-relief programs are invaluable to the community and make a monumental difference in the lives of others each day,” he added. “The true winners of the Legal Food Frenzy are the food banks and the hard-working Georgians they serve.”
Georgia’s legal community in total raised a record breaking $936,883 during the tenth annual event, sponsored by the Georgia Food Bank Association, the Young Lawyers Division, and the Attorney General’s office. The two-week competition generated the equivalent of 3.75 million meals that food banks can use to distribute to hungry kids, seniors, and families. A total of 210 law firms and legal organizations competed in the 2021 event.
