Ways to Give Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) Food Goals

Join the fight to end hunger.

The GTHL is teaming up with Daily Bread Food Bank and food banks across the GTA to help fight hunger this holiday season. 

In this era when ‘the length of a hockey stick’ is used as a measure of appropriate social distancing, we’re inviting the families of ‘The G’, GTHL alumni, and hockey fans across the city, to join the GHTL’s Food Goals campaign. 

Whether you collect food, give a financial gift, or set up a fundraiser, every donation matters.  

Together, we can make sure that our neighbours who experience hunger will have access to the food they need in the challenging months ahead. 

Why food banks across the GTA need your support? 

Since COVID-19 hit Toronto in March, food bank use has continued to rise rapidly. With a 200% increase in new clients accessing food banks in Toronto during COVID-19 pandemic, your donation will ensure that families who need support can access nutritious food this winter.
