Since 2010 the tour has managed to raise hundreds of thousands of pounds of food, plus monetary donations, for local food banks in the communities in which the games are played, from coast to coast.
The games are for all ages and skill levels — all you need is a hockey stick and a can of food to participate. In Vancouver, all funds and food raised will support the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. Local officials, media, sports figures, and celebrities occasionally make their way to Five Hole For Food games as well and it’s lots of fun to watch even if you don’t play. Follow the campaign on Facebook and Twitter for more information.
