Purolator Tackle Hunger - Labour Day

The Purolator Tackle Hunger campaign will visit each CFL market this season and host a food drive at selected CFL home games throughout the season. In return for their food and cash donation, fans have the special opportunity to have their photo taken with the Grey Cup.

Purolator is committed to supporting local food banks in the communities in which it operates. As part of this commitment, Purolator works closely with its employees, select customers and Food Banks Canada to help raise food bank awareness and collect donations for local food banks across Canada.

The Purolator Tackle Hunger Program will return for its ninth season in Hamilton and fans are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation to the stadium. In return, fans will have the opportunity to receive a souvenir photo with the Grey Cup and enter a draw to win two tickets to the 2011 Grey Cup in Vancouver. Purolator volunteers and Ticats alumni will be stationed at each stadium gate to collect donations. Last year, Hamilton football fans raised 50,466 pounds of food - 26% more than in 2009 - for Hamilton Food Share through the Purolator Tackle Hunger program.
