November 25, 2011 - December 2 marks the 25th anniversary of CBC/Radio-Canada's Food Bank Day. This year, Kelowna radio shows Daybreak and Radio West will be moving their shows down the street for a special live broadcast at the Kelowna Rotary Centre for the Arts at 421 Cawston Avenue.

"This is a very special year for us in Kelowna," says Johnny Michel, managing director of CBC British Columbia. "Not only have we expanded our presence in the community with a new afternoon show and expanded bureau, but with our 25th year of raising funds for food banks in the province, we are looking forward to coming together with the community on this important initiative."

The Okanagan's morning show, Daybreak, will be hosted by Chris Walker from 6 - 8:30 am on Radio One. Following the live broadcast is "Poetry 'n Motion" a day-long event offering the public a chance to take part in everything from poetry reading to belly dancing. Then, starting at 3 pm, Rebecca Zandbergen hosts a special edition of Radio West.

The public is encouraged to come down, join in the activities and make a donation to the Kelowna Food Bank.
