A cross-country hockey tour that aims to raise support for local food banks is making a stop in Winnipeg on July 13.

Five Hole for Food (FHFF) is a national non-profit organization with a goal of raising food and awareness for a cause that affects 10.8 million Canadians a year.

The 17-day tour will stop in 13 cities to play hockey for food. It will cover more than 11,000 kilometres and hopes to collect the equivalent of 250,000 pounds of food in support of Canadian food banks.

The initiative was created in 2010 by university student Richard Loat, who at the time had a dream to use hockey as a vehicle for social change.

The tour will stop at Corydon Avenue at Cockburn Street this Saturday beginning at 12 p.m.
