British Columbia food banks received more than 12,000 meals as the result of two team-building events held earlier this month, reports Vancouver-based Eventology,
Using Catalyst Global’s Hole in One activity, a 250-person group from First West Credit Union completed the 90-minute challenge at Whistlers’ conference centre as part of its Feed the Valley and Full Cupboard campaign, donating 11,362 meals to three food banks. Hole in One was also used by a 40-person group from Douglas College. which donated more than 1,130 meals to Port Moody’s SHARE Food Bank—the single biggest donation of goods the organization can remember seeing.
Hole in One is a team-building activity that see participants work in teams to design and build a fun, challenging and conceptually unique mini-golf course out of non-perishable food donations. Once the course is built, the teams play a tournament using putters they have designed and constructed themselves. At the end of the tournament, the non-perishable food items are calculated into meals for donation to the team’s chosen charity.
