Mission: Stock local food pantries
Date: March 9-April 1, 2021
Hockey Checks Hunger focuses on alleviating extreme food shortages in community pantries throughout Central Mass. Local youth hockey organizations including the Junior Railers HC, Worcester White Hawks, Twin City Hawks, NCMYH Sting, Minuteman Flames, and NorthStars Hockey Club will come together to donate non-perishable food items to be distributed to pantries across the region.
Through the generosity of sponsors including Fidelity Bank and Fallon Health, the Railers will fill the Railers HC Equipment Van presented by Advantage Truck Group (@weknowtrucks) with non-perishables and deliver them to food pantries on a weekly basis.
The community is encouraged to participate in Hockey Checks Hunger. Paper shopping bags provided by Price Chopper/Market 32 will be available to the public for pick-up at the Rail Shop, located at 112 Harding St., Worcester. Contribute a non-perishable food item and receive a 20% discount off a single item in the store. Those who return a full bag will receive 40% off their entire store purchase. Rail Shop hours are Tuesday-Wednesday 4pm-8pm and Saturday-Sunday 10am-3pm.
