We’re hitting the road in July for our 4th annual cross-country tour and we want to share our story with loyal supporters from the East Coast to the West Coast.
Join us at three ING Direct Cafe locations across Canada on June 13th as we launch our 2013 Tour. With a brand new goal and some familiar faces, we’re excited to share our next adventure with you!
From May 6-10, Canada is “giving it up for hunger”.
In an effort to raise awareness of hunger in Canada, Food Banks across the country are holding events in their local communities as they tell the stories of hungry Canadians who rely on their services month after month. A week-long initiative, this campaign seeks to challenge Canadians to learn more about the issue of hunger and take action in their community.
As we prepare to embark on our cross-country tour, this initiative hits home with our organization. In a three-week trip across the country, Five Hole for Food helps support 13 food bank organizations in 13 different cities. One short trip. One large impact. One new goal, set to be released in the coming month.

Our friends at the Canadian Sponsorship Forum are hosting this year’s event in Saskatoon during the Memorial Cup and, in the spirit of hockey and social good, they’re prepared to host the inaugural CSF Ball Hockey Tournament in this Canadian city. In support of the tournament, we’re set to join the action and bring CHL fans on board to play hockey in support of the Saskatoon Food Bank.
In our first Saskatoon rumble, we’re very excited to drop the puck in this city. We’re shutting down 23rd Street on May 25th to play ball hockey for the Food Bank and, in true Memorial Cup theme, we’ll host a quick draft to form four teams. Join us from 5:00PM-7:00PM as we bring road hockey to Saskatoon.
Saskatoon, will you play hockey for food?
On June 8th from 2:00PM to 5:00PM, we’ll set-up rinks at Stuart Park and invite supporters from Kelowna, BC to bring their hockey sticks and cans of food as we collect donations for the Kelowna Food Bank.
We’ll have more details for you as they are confirmed but, for now, be sure to mark the date on your calendars and RSVP on Facebook here.
About the Kelowna Food Bank
In 1983, the Kelowna Community Food Bank Society set up operation in an effort to meet the emergency food needs of their community. Like many Food Banks across Canada, temporary help became a permanent community service. In the ensuing decades, the Kelowna Food Bank has grown from serving 600 people per year to nearly 40,000, with nearly 40% of them children under age 16. The Kelowna Food Bank’s innovative approach to nutrition has led them to launch the Nutrition Improvement programming (NIP), with more than half of their recipients qualifying for the program.
