November 30, 2012 - Join your favourite local CBC Radio personalities at the Tournament Capital Centre on December 7 for the 26th anniversary of CBC/Radio-Canada's Food Bank Day.

"This is a very special year for us in Kamloops," says Johnny Michel, managing director of CBC British Columbia. "With the opening of our Kamloops bureau and launch of Daybreak Kamloops in September, this is the perfect opportunity to support this important community need."

CBC Radio One's Daybreak Kamloops broadcasts from 6 am - 8:30 am with host Shelley Joyce and musical guest Sabrina Weeks of Spring Cat Bounce.

The Okanagan's afternoon show Radio West with host Rebecca Zandbergen will be live from 4 pm - 6 pm. The show will feature choral music to get you in the holiday mood, interviews with local food bank volunteers and a special performance by Kris Ruston.

The public is encouraged to come down, join in the activities and make a donation to the local food bank.

CBC/Radio-Canada in BC has raised well over $3 million for British Columbia food banks. For more information and to make a donation, visit http://www.cbc.ca/bc/features/openhouse-foodbank/
