Help HMS Support Our Local Food Bank
Law firms across the state are raising money and food for local food banks in this year’s Legal Food Frenzy food drive! HMS is joining with our friends at Lueder, Larkin & Hunter to raise money to help feed children in the Atlanta Area. See what Lueder, Larkin & Hunter has to say about this great cause, and how you can help!
Why we participate:
60 percent of kids in Georgia are eligible for free or reduced meals during school year and 1 in 5 kids in Georgia live in food insecure households, meaning they do not know where their next meal will come from.
For many children, their school-time meals are their only reliable meal. Families struggle during the summer months when kids are home without this resource. The Georgia legal community gets together each year to ensure the food banks are stocked to meet this need.
How you can help:
For every $1 you donate, the food banks can distribute $8, or 4 pounds worth, of groceries into the community! Monetary donations can be made online by clicking here. We would also be extremely grateful if you could share this post with your family and friends and hopefully inspire them to donate as well. You can also make physical donations right at the HMS office in the Legal Food Frenzy box. (See below for the most-needed items.)
How food banks impact our community:
Since the Legal Food Frenzy began 8 years ago, the legal community, with your help, has raised over $1.5 million for our local food banks. This equates to 6 million meals for families in need!
Our goal for 2019:
Because this is Lueder, Larkin & Hunter’s 5th year participating with our incredible managers we have set a team goal of $5,000 in monetary donations and 1,500 actual pounds of food. We want to collect over 20,000 pounds this year. We cannot reach this goal without your help!
I Want to Help!
If you want to help HMS and Lueder, Larkin & Hunter raise money to feed under-privileged children in the Atlanta area, then click here to learn more and make a donation today! Remember, the local food banks can provide four meals with only $1.
Or, you can bring unopened food items from the list below to the HMS office:
Most needed food items: Peanut Butter, Canned Tuna, Canned Beans, Canned Soups, Stews, Pastas, 100% Fruit Juice, Canned Fruits, Vegetables, Macaroni and Cheese Dinners, Whole Grains, Low Sugar Cereals (boxed)
Candy will not be counted.
Please don’t donate food items in glass containers – they have a high risk of breaking.
Please do not open items that are already packed in cases, cartons, or boxes. This will make it easier for the Food Bank to pick up.
