The Augusta kick off to the 2016 Georgia Legal Food Frenzy took place on April 14 at the Partridge Inn with an impassioned plea from Superior Court Judge James Blanchard as to the merits of giving to such a worthy cause. Among those in attendance were the Golden Harvest Food Bank Director Travis McNeal, Georgia Young Lawyers Division President Jack Long, volunteers with Golden Harvest and many fellow attorneys. I am honored to be part of such a noble effort.
The food drive and competition among attorneys, judges, law schools and legal organizations officially begins Monday, April 18 and continues to April 29. The sad reality is that 0ne in five Georgians struggle with hunger every day and that one in four Georgia children do not get enough to eat. During the upcoming summer months the situation becomes even more dire when Georgia children eligible for reduced or free lunches in school are without these meals.

A little bit goes a long way. One dollar equals four pounds. My goal is to reach 8000 pounds and open a dialogue with you about how we can finally address the root causes of poverty in our area. I will keep you up to date over the next eleven days by blogging and facebook as to our progress. As in the words of another famous attorney, ” NO YOU ARE NOT BOTHERING ME’ so feel free to stop me wherever you see me to make a donation or to talk about ways to combat this problem. Together we can make a difference and begin the task of repairing the world.
Thank You for caring.
