The Georgia Society of CPAs and Georgia’s Accounting community are gearing up for some friendly competition to see who can raise the most funds and collect the most food to support the Georgia Food Bank Association and local Food Banks like Georgia Mountain Food Bank across the state of Georgia. Accounting firms and industry accounting departments in Georgia are invited to compete for bragging rights! The goal this year is to have 75 groups raise $120,000 and 15,000 pounds of food for Georgia’s Food Banks!
June 1 – August 18: Registration OPEN!
July 24: Sign – Up by this Date for 100 Bonus Points!
August 7 – 18: Accounting Food Fight – Only food & funds raised during this time count towards your totals!
August 25: Final day for competitors to submit donations to their food banks.
HOW IT WORKS
For every dollar raised during the competition, a team earns 4 points ($1=4 Points). For every pound of food raised, a team earns 1 point (1 Pound = 1 Point), with various opportunities for bonus points. Awards are also given based on points per employee, so any size firm or company can be competitive! Everything each firm or company raises stays LOCAL and benefits the regional Food Bank that serves their community. Once you get registered, you will be connected with your Food Bank and given specific donation instructions and helpful tips!
After the competition and all the donations are turned in, each firm’s points are tallied and we determine the statewide Grand Prize Winners – the “Food Fight Hero” – the firm or company with the most points per employee” and the “Hunger Champion” – the firm or company with the most total points overall. There are also awards given in different size categories.
