The Atlanta Community Food Bank recently announced that Moore Colson, an award-winning accounting, consulting and advisory firm in Atlanta, won the Large Firms category in the ninth annual Georgia Accounting Food Fight. The two-week competition, sponsored by The Georgia Society of CPAs (GSCPA) and Feeding Georgia, brings together accounting professionals across Georgia to raise funds for the state’s eight regional food banks. According to GSCPA and Feeding Georgia, the Georgia Accounting Food Fight has raised a record-breaking $372,900, equivalent to 1,491,631 meals for the Food Bank in 2022, representing a seven percent increase over last year’s results. Since the first Food Fight in 2014, accounting professionals have raised $1,812,000, equivalent to 7,248,000 meals.
During the friendly two-week competition, accounting professionals statewide competed to earn points by raising funds for Feeding Georgia. The Food Fight also helped Georgia’s food banks respond to the increasing need for food assistance since pandemic assistance programs are waning and inflation is rising. According to Feeding Georgia, competitors included teams from over 70 accounting firms and industry accounting departments. Feeding Georgia presented awards to accounting professionals in several categories, including Big Four, Large Firm, Medium Firm, Small Firm, Sole Proprietor, Industry Accounting Department, Grand Prize Food Fight Hero and Grand Prize Hunger Champion.
Moore Colson raised $39,617 for the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ACFB), ranking Moore Colson number one in Georgia in the Large Firms category for Total Points and Points per Employee. This year is the firm’s eighth consecutive win in the Large Firms category.
“At Moore Colson, we take great pride in helping our local communities succeed. Putting an end to food insecurity is a critical way to help individuals in our communities focus on their families, health, work and education without worrying about their next meal,” noted Todd McMullen, Moore Colson partner and Atlanta Community Food Bank board member. “Since the first Food Fight, our firm has been an industry leader in supporting those across the state struggling with hunger. We are honored that the 2022 Large Firm category win has again recognized our team members’ generosity.”
