On December 29th at 8:30pm playing hockey for food will commence as 8 Rinks in Burnaby generously donated ice time to Hockey Community in support of The Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society. So they put it out there to challenge a team to play for food. Five Hole for Food graciously accepted the challenge! Both teams will battle it out on the ice on December 29, 2010 at 8 Rinks (Rink 3) at 8:30PM.
If you are interested in playing on Team Hockey Community or Team Five Hole for Food you have to sign up here first. Please remember to bring non perishable food items in order to play.
Five Hole for Food is an organization that travels province to province during the summer to play street hockey for food, supporting local food banks. Richard Loat (Founder) and Vic Lo are already planning their trip for 2011. They will hit 6 provinces in 11 days, hoping to raise as much non perishable food as they can. They will kick start their road hockey trip in St. John on June 23, 2011.
