It’s been five years since our first coast-to-coast tour playing ball hockey for local food banks and we’re back again to support the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry.
Join us on July 5th from 12:00PM – 4:00PM at the Simmons Sports Arena. All you need is a hockey stick and a can of food – we’ll supply the rest. Will you play hockey for food?
Upper Room Hospitality Ministry
The Upper Room Hospitality Ministry was first opened as a soup kitchen in 1984 and then two years later opened a food bank. Both facilities are run by volunteers and paid staff and rely exclusively on donations of food and funds. Workin with the Canadian Association of Food Banks, the Upper Room Hospitality Ministry distributes food to other food banks and soup kitchens across the province.

How long you’ve lived there?
I have lived in Charlottetown my entire life.
Why are you involved in FHFF?
I have always loved watching and playing hockey – FHFF is the perfect combination of having fun while giving back to the community. I admire the energy and passion of the FHFF team – accomplishing incredible things for local food banks all across the country.
Anything we should know about you?
I genuinely love helping others and giving back to my community. Last May I did a “31 Random Acts of Kindness Challenge” and hope to do another one in the future – it was very rewarding.
What are the top 3 “must see’s” in your city that you think all visitors should check out?
This is a huge year for Prince Edward Island. 2014 marks the 150th anniversary (sesquicentennial) of the 1864 Charlottetown Conference. More than 150 festivals, events and activities form a province-wide celebration to commemorate this landmark event. There’s never been a better time to visit PEI!
What is your favourite thing to do in your city?
I love boating, kayaking, SUP and hanging out on the beautiful white and red sand Island beaches. I can’t think of a more amazing place to be in the summer.
What do you love about your city?
I love the small town feel, and how friendly Islanders are. I always look at my city with fresh eyes, there is so much beauty everywhere.
