Bovis, Kyle, Burch & Medlin again participated in the 11th Annual Legal Food Frenzy Competition, organized by Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr, the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia, and Feeding Georgia (formerly Georgia Food Bank Association). This yearly event is for law firms, legal departments, and law schools to collect food and raise money to benefit the local community food banks. Our firm’s donations benefited the Atlanta Community Food Banks, and the Bovis Kyle family raised enough to provide 9,321.4 meals to our neighbors and those in our community who are experiencing food insecurity.

The two-week fundraising initiative raised enough money to provide 2.7 million meals to the Atlanta Community Food Bank (which services 29 Metro Atlanta counties). “Even as the worst of the pandemic appears to be behind us, many Georgia families continue to struggle with the fallout, recovering economically but continuing to struggle to make ends meet. The current inflationary environment puts added pressure on limited food budgets. We are incredibly grateful to Atlanta’s legal community for continuing this meaningful partnership and helping us fight hunger,” said Kyle Waide, President and CEO of Atlanta Community Food Bank. “Their support comes at such a critical time; the impact of this collective effort will go a long way!”

“While the Legal Food Frenzy only represents two weeks of our lives, this year’s competition will have a lasting impact on the children, seniors, and families that will be fed because of [our] efforts.”  - Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr

Bovis Kyle is a proud yearly participant in the Legal Food Frenzy, with the attorneys and staff committed to do our part to ensure those who are experiencing food insecurity have an opportunity to put meals on their table.
