Five Hole for Food Asks, "Calgary, Will You Play Hockey for Food?"

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 24, 2015) - The facts: 13 cities. 18 Days. 11,000 kilometres. One epic road trip starting in Newfoundland and ending in British Columbia.

Five Hole for Food founder, Richard Loat and his friends are setting off on a coast-to-coast tour for the sixth consecutive year, stopping in 13 cities along the way, and playing ball hockey to feed hungry Canadians. After a milestone 5th anniversary tour, FHFF looks to continue building upon the 1-million pounds of food it has raised over five years for local community food banks during this year's road trip.

Calgary is the tenth stop of the road trip. The public is invited to bring their hockey stick to play in a drop-in ball hockey game and, if they dare, challenge Richard and his crew in the face-off circle. Individuals and teams can now register in advance of the event at:

While there is no charge to play, participants and spectators are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation. Volunteers from the local food bank will be on site to collect donations.
