Take a Byte out of Hunger | June 12 – June 23
1 in 4 children in Georgia are food insecure, meaning they may not know where their next meal is coming from. YOU can help.
We have teamed up with TAG and HUB Magazine’s Food Technology Features, Bytes, to host Bytes for Bites, a friendly food and fund drive competition to benefit our 8 regional Food Banks.
For two weeks only (June 12- June 23), Technology Companies and IT Departments across the state will compete to raise the most food and funds for their regional Food Bank. Now is the chance to face-off with your fiercest rivals in the industry and see who can have the biggest impact on hunger. Who will win the prestigious TAG Cup this year?
- MAY 1: Register by this date for 100 Bonus Points!
- JUNE 12 -23: Bytes for Bites Competition!
- JUNE 30: Last day to get donations to your Food Bank!
- July 14: TAG Day of Service – Winners Announced!
HOW IT WORKS
For every dollar raised during the competition, a company earns 4 points ($1=4 Points). For every pound of food raised, a company 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 company can be competitive!
Everything each 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 company’s points are tallied and we determine the statewide Grand Prize TAG Cup Winners – the company who has the most total points and the company with the most total points per employee. Additional awards are given in different size categories and by TAG Chapter.
