'FIVE HOLE FOR FOOD' VISITS SAINT JOHN THIS MONDAY
Bring a can of food. Bring a stick. Play some hockey and support the Community Food Basket of Saint John. That’s how Five Hole for Food works.
“Five Hole for Food is an annual coast to coast tour playing hockey to support food banks across Canada,” states their website.
“We set up a rink in the heart of each city and invite anyone and everyone to come out to play hockey to fight hunger. Bring your stick, bring a can of food, and have fun. 100% of the proceeds go to the local food bank in each city.”
Here is an educational video on what they are all about:
They began their cross country tour Thursday in St. John’s, played in Halifax Saturday, and will visit Charlottetown Sunday.
On Monday from 12-6 pm on Long Wharf, the group of hockey enthusiasts will make their only Saint John tour stop. So bring a food/money donation, a hockey stick, help support a great cause, and play some street hockey. More information on their Saint John stop can be found here.
