ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia’s attorney general is set to kick off the fourth annual Georgia Legal Food Frenzy.

The statewide food drive competition between Georgia lawyers benefits the state’s eight regional food banks. In its first three years the Legal Food Frenzy raised the equivalent of more than 2.5 million pounds of food.

Attorney General Sam Olens is set to be joined by Georgia Food Bank Association executive director Danah Craft and State Bar of Georgia Young Lawyers Division president Sharri Edenfield at the state Capitol Wednesday to launch the event.

The food drive is timed to fill state food banks in preparation for the summer when they see a spike in demand because school is out. About 60 percent of Georgia’s public school students are eligible for free or reduced price lunch.
