Ontario Pork Partners with the Kitchener Rangers to Restock Food Bank Shelves

GUELPH - In celebration of Canada’s Agriculture Day, Ontario Pork is excited to announce that we are teaming up with the Ontario Hockey League's Kitchener Rangers to hold a large-scale food drive and help tackle hunger.

On Tuesday February 13, 2024, as the Rangers play host to the Guelph Storm, fans are being asked to bring a non-perishable food item to the game. The food will be collected by volunteers from Ontario Pork and Feed Ontario and distributed through The Food Bank of Waterloo Region.

This food drive comes at an important time, as February remains a month when food bank shelves have been depleted during a busy holiday season, but the need continues to grow.

There are a limited number of tickets available for producers and industry members to purchase in a group setting. Producers or industry members interested in purchasing discounted tickets to this game please email tyler.calver@ontariopork.on.ca

Whether it’s a family night out, an employee appreciation opportunity, or team building within your local association, we encourage you to celebrate our industry and experience OHL hockey while supporting those in need.
