The 2nd Annual Bytes for Bites competition was a SUCCESS!
Over 40 technology companies representing more than 3,000 members of the industry far surpassed the goal and raised $67, 773.79 and 4,352 pounds of food for the Georgia Food Bank Association. This is the equivalent of 275,158 meals that the Food Banks will be able to distribute to families and children struggling with hunger in Georgia!
TAG and HUB Magazine’s Food Technology Features, Bytes, have teamed up with the Georgia Food Bank Association to engage Georgia’s technology community in the fight against hunger through Bytes for Bites, a friendly food and fund drive competition to benefit Georgia's regional Food Banks.
For two weeks, tech companies and IT departments across the state will competed to raise the most food and funds for their regional Food Bank. For every dollar raised during the competition, a company earned 4 points ($1=4 Points). For every pound of food raised, a company earned 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 raised stays LOCAL and benefits the regional Food Bank that serves their community!
Congratulations to the 2017 Bytes for Bites Winners!
