Five Hole for Food (FHFF) in Vancouver on Saturday July 9, 2011

Five Hole for Food (FHFF) is a non-profit group driving coast to coast to help Canada’s food banks. The road trip, led by Simon Fraser University student Richard Loat (@mozy19), started June 23 and will visit 13 cities in 17 days. FHFF organizes a ball hockey game in each city and encourages the public to come play Canada’s favourite sport and also bring a donation for the local food bank.

More than 6,000 pounds of food were collected last year. In 2011, FHFF has already collected in excess of 6,500 pounds of food after only four stops. The road trip started in Newfoundland and ends in Vancouver. FHFF’s sponsors include Molson Canadian, WestJet, TELUS, Canadian Pacific, Boston Pizza, and London Drugs.

“Summer is one of the worst times for food banks because their inventories are low,” says Loat. “This is their greatest time of need and we timed our cross-country road trip to help them feed hungry Canadians.”

For its Vancouver event on July 9, FHFF is setting up three ball hockey courts on Granville Street between Robson and Smithe. Everyone is invited to bring their hockey stick and a food donation.
