Canada Day International is proud to be partnering with an organization that asks one simple question: Will you play hockey for food?
Five Hole for Food (FHFF) is a national, volunteer-driven, social-profit organization with a bold, enterprising, and entrepreneurial approach aimed at raising food and awareness for a cause that affects 10.8 million Canadians a year. Over the past three years, FHFF has raised in excess of 200,000 pounds of food in support of local food banks across Canada. Armed with national partners, the unwavering support of over 40 volunteers, and an identity borne from social media, FHFF is bringing together communities across Canada by using hockey as a vehicle for social change, and reaching a new generation of social entrepreneurs. FHFF is out to prove that a generation hungry for change, an engaged corporate community, and a national pastime is the perfect formula for changing the face of fundraising.
