For 36 years, British Columbians have been generously donating to food banks at CBC/Radio-Canada’s annual Open House and Food Bank Day, raising more than $18 million for food banks in B.C.
The demand for food banks in B.C. and across Canada is skyrocketing, with almost 200,000 visits to B.C. food banks happening in the past year. Between inflation and the continuing cost-of-living crisis, more people are accessing services from food banks every year.
Listen to CBC Radio on December 1 to hear a special broadcast that you can stream and watch live.
CBC BC is also inviting the public to be part of a small, intimate live studio audience at the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre for the day’s special programs! Seats are limited, register here.
When you donate you help get food to people that need it most – like the 3,106 new clients served by the Central Okanagan Food Bank this year. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
