The Georgia Society of CPAs and Georgia’s Accounting community are using their one voice to create a friendly food and fund drive competition among Georgia accounting professionals to support the seven regional Georgia Food Banks that comprise the Georgia Food Bank Association.

The 3rd Annual Georgia Accounting Food Fight was a Success!
2016 Results:

62 Firms in 22 cities competed in the 2016 Accounting Food Fight representing over 3,500 employees in the accounting community.  Together, we raised 16,747 pounds of food and $108,434.  This is equivalent of nearly 448,000 meals that Georgia’s 8 Regional Food Banks will be able to distribute, nearly a 10% increase from last year.
