Game is hockey, goal is food banks - this looks good

Game is hockey, goal is food banks

A non-profit organization is hoping Canada’s love of hockey will help propel it toward its goal to collect 113,400 kilograms of food for community food banks across the country.

This is the fourth year Five Hole for Food, a charity ball hockey game, has toured the country. The concept is simple — people who want to participate in a friendly game need only turn up with a hockey stick and a non-perishable food item or cash donation.

This year, the charity will travel 11,000 kilometres and visit 13 cities coast-to-coast in 18 days. The road trip started in St. John’s July 3 and is expected to arrive in Victoria on Friday.

The non-profit group have signed up hockey celebrities such as Trevor Linden and Roberto Luongo to lend their star appeal to otherwise ordinary road hockey.

People interested in participating should arrive between 2 and 6 p.m. at Saanich Plaza, 3501 Ravine Way. Food and donations collected locally benefit the Mustard Seed Food Bank.
