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

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - July 7, 2014) - The facts: 13 cities. 18 Days. 11,000 kilometres. Half-a-million pounds of food. One epic fifth anniversary 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 fifth year, stopping in 13 cities along the way, and playing ball hockey to feed hungry Canadians. As it being the momentous fifth anniversary, FHFF's goal is to collect the 1 millionth pound of food for local community food banks during this year's road trip.

Vancouver is the final 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. 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.
