This is something definitely worth checking out. It's called Five Hole For Food.
From their website: Five Hole for Food is an annual coast to coast tour playing hockey to support food banks across Canada.
We set up a rink in the heart of each city and invite anyone and everyone to come out to play hockey to fight hunger. Bring your stick, bring a can of food, and have fun. 100% of the proceeds go to the local food bank in each city.
We work with local hockey bloggers in each city to organize the local game and get the community involved.
Five Hole for Food partners with professional and amateur hockey teams throughout its 17-day tour to raise awareness about hunger in Canada.
Uniting fans of all loyalties, FHFF is visiting St. John’s, Halifax, Charlottetown, Saint John, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton, Victoria, and Vancouver in 2011.
Information about Regina's leg of the voyage can be found here: http://www.fiveholeforfood.com/regina/. Please check it out. It looks like it will be fun!

I think this is a great cause and I plan on following the journey from the East coast back to the West coast. I think I will add a sidebar that will follow the journey to my blog. I honestly wish I would have known about this earlier as I think this is a great idea for a great cause.
