One million pounds of food. And all this because a hockey blogger wanted to get out of his basement, see Canada, play hockey, and get some more Twitter followers.

"I'd be lying to you if I told you that when I started this, I wanted to start a charity," Loat admitted. "I was looking to drive across Canada. I wanted to meet other hockey writers, I wanted more followers. We were trying to build relationshps and do the social thing. And here we are five summers later."
