Join us tomorrow, Friday, December 3 for one of the most exciting days of the year here for us at CBC Vancouver. It's CBC's Open House & Food Bank Day where we we open our doors in support of food banks in B.C. and welcome you into our state-of-the-art broadcast centre.
This is the 24th year of the CBC British Columbia Food Bank Day where all our local and regional radio shows broadcast special programs to help inspire your generosity towards those who need the services that B.C. food banks provide. In tandem, we invite everyone to come to the CBC Broadcast Centre in downtown Vancouver on 700 Hamilton Street to see how we make radio, television and digital programming.
You can meet on-air personalities including Peter Mansbridge, George Stroumboulopoulos, Q's Jian Ghomeshi and your favourite local personalities including Tony Parsons and Gloria Macarenko. Tour the integrated newsroom and help your local food bank by making a donation. It's a day full of great entertainment, exciting activities and heartfelt generosity.
Food Bank Day kicks off 5:30 a.m. with CBC Radio One's The Early Edition. Our phone lines are open from 6:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m. to take your donation calls but we hope you can come downtown for a visit and donate in person.
The Open House runs from 8:00 a.m to 7:00 p.m. For more information, visit CBC's Open House & Food Bank Day page.
