DETROIT -- College Hockey at The Joe and the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) are teaming up with Forgotten Harvest and Gleaners Community Food Bank to offer schools, groups, and the general public a unique opportunity to help put an end to hunger in Metro Detroit. 
 
Participating individuals in the College Hockey Helping Hunger program will have an opportunity to sell tickets to the CCHA Championship, held March 19-20 at Joe Louis Arena, where a portion of each ticket sale will be given to Forgotten Harvest and Gleaners. With every single ticket sale, five meals are provided to the hungry. Championship tickets are sold at face value prices at $32, $22 and $12.   
 
Prizes will be awarded to the three top-selling groups, including the top prize, a suite for 20 at a Detroit Red Wings game during the 2010-11 season.  All program participants will receive a special welcome at The Joe during the Championship weekend.
 
To participate or to learn more, log-on to www.CollegeHockeyAtTheJoe.com. Individuals without internet access may call 888-332-7140 toll-free for further details. 
 
Forgotten Harvest was formed in 1990 to fight two problems: hunger and waste. Forgotten Harvest “rescued” more than 12.5 million pounds of food last year by collecting surplus prepared and perishable food from more than 400 sources, including grocery stores, fruit and vegetable markets, restaurants, caterers, dairies, farmers, wholesale food distributors, and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food, which would otherwise go to waste, is delivered free-of-charge to 155 emergency food providers in the Metro Detroit area.

For more than 32 years, Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan has been nourishing the community by feeding hungry people. Last year, Gleaners distributed more than 30 million pounds of emergency food to more than 430 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston and Monroe counties. Of every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 95 cents for food and food programs. Learn more at www.gcfb.org.
