Troutman Sanders added almost $5,000 to its Legal Food Frenzy total to place the firm in third place among teams campaigning for the Atlanta Community Food Bank.
The statewide event raising money to buy meals for families that don’t have enough to eat—819,000 people in the Atlanta area, including 1 in 5 children—ends at midnight Friday. That means the Frenzy will live up to its name if it is to meet the Atlanta goal of $300,000. As of 4 p.m. Thursday, the teams had scooped up $200,037, leaving teams scrambling for late donations.
Another big mover was Taylor English Duma, which jumped from 17th place to 10th with $2,000 in new donations. That increase alone translates to 8,000 meals or $16,000 in food, given the efficiency reported by the Atlanta Community Food Bank and its counterparts around the state.

- Joe S. Habachy PC (captain Joe Habachy), $18,735;
