Five Hole For Food

L-R: Richard Loat, Dixon Tam and Vic Lo of Five Hole For Food.

Richard Loat has had a fairly eventful summer. He graduated from Simon Fraser University with a degree in Communications. He got engaged. And he just returned from a three-week, cross-country tour with his charity, Five Hole For Food.

Five Hole for Food is as Canadian a charity as you'll find, an annual coast-to-coast tour that organizes a day of pickup hockey in support of food banks across Canada. Rinks are set up in the heart of 13 Canadian cities, and anyone and everyone is invited to come with a hockey stick and a donation. 100% of the proceeds go to the city's local food bank.

The charity is growing exponentially. Last year, FHFF raised 43,000 pounds of food on their tour. This year, they raised that much at the finale in Vancouver alone, shattering their ambitious goal of 100,000 pounds with over 133,000 pounds collected in three weeks.
