The 2nd annual Five Hole For Food cross Canada food drive is well underway and by the sounds of it Richard Loat and his team are not only having a blast playing street hockey across the country, they are on the way to smashing their 20,000 pounds of food goal with just 747 pounds to go after they’re Winnipeg event. The team is on their way to Regina next and still have stops in Calgary, Edmonton and Victoria before ending their journey at home in Vancouver on July 9th.
Vancouver is where the idea of Five Hole for Food was born. After starting the trip on the very East Coast it is all going to culminate in the biggest game of the trip as the team will play hockey downtown Vancouver on Granville street for the last time on the trip.
