Inaugural mini-golf challenge lets local residents play with their food

When administrators from the Gateway Mall came to Prince Albert Food Bank director Wes Clarke with their latest fundraising idea, he couldn’t wait to say yes.

The food bank and mall are partnering together for the city’s inaugural Canned Food Mini-Golf Challenge, an event Clark said they’re excited to begin.

I like the fact that it was a fun thing for people to do, and the fact that it was family oriented,” he explained. “Those two items, children and family, that is our mandate here at the food bank. That’s where our focus is.”

While most mini-golf courses utilize bricks and wood, this one will be built out of something different: food. Sponsors will be tasked with designing one hole of mini-golf using nothing but donated cans and boxes of food for the boundaries and obstacles.
