Feeding Georgia announced recently that Moore Colson, an award-winning accounting, consulting and advisory firm in Atlanta, won the Large Firms category in the tenth 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 nine regional food banks. According to GSCPA and Feeding Georgia, the Georgia Accounting Food Fight has raised $347,537, equivalent to nearly 1.4 million meals for the food banks in 2023. Since the first Food Fight in 2014, accounting professionals have raised $2,198,972, equivalent to 8,832,497 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 restock the food banks after the summer surge they experienced due to the conclusion of the school year and school lunch assistance programs. According to Feeding Georgia, competitors included teams from 67 accounting firms and industry accounting departments. Feeding Georgia presented awards to accounting professionals in several categories, including Grand Prize Food Fight Hero, Grand Prize Hunger Champion, Big Four, Industry Accounting Department, Large Firm, Medium Firm, Small Firm and Sole Proprietor.
Moore Colson raised $45,543 for Feeding Georgia, approximately a 15 percent increase over last year, ranking Moore Colson number one in Georgia in the Large Firms category for Most Points Overall and Most Points per Employee. This year is the firm’s ninth consecutive win in the Large Firms category.
“Moore Colson is committed to positively impacting the well-being of our community. The fight against food insecurity is not just a competition for us, it’s a mission to empower individuals and families across Georgia,” said Jon Powell, Moore Colson partner. “Our success in the Large Firms category in the Georgia Accounting Food Fight reaffirms our firm’s dedication to making hunger a thing of the past. Every meal we help provide brings us one step closer to a stronger, more resilient Georgia.”
