Vancouver Canucks Donate Unused Food from Postponed Games to Food Banks


VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canucks will be donating their unused food from their postponed games against the Toronto Maple Leafs and Arizona Coyotes this weekend to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank and the Salvation Army. The food is enough to feed roughly 36,000 people.

“We got a few pallets of produce, we got some buns, we got some pre-cooked meals – things like hamburgers, hot dogs, mashed potatoes, green beans. Anything that would have been served at the Canucks games,” Alex Beyer, Operations manager at the Greater Vancouver Food Bank told CBC News.

“It feels fantastic when that happens, when it all works out for us,” Robert Bartley, executive chef with Canucks Sports and Entertainment told CBC News. “Maybe it’s kind of a good blessing in disguise.”
