Host Chris Walker will be joined by musical guest Andrew Allen for a special live broadcast held at the CBC Kelowna studio located at 243 Lawrence Avenue.

"Kelowna residents have always shown tremendous support of CBC's annual Food Bank Day," says Johnny Michel, managing director of CBC British Columbia. "As the need for food banks continues to grow, we look forward to welcoming the public in support of this important cause." 

The Okanagan's afternoon show Radio West is going on the road for a special broadcast from Kamloops's Tournament Capital Centre from 4 pm - 6 pm. Hosted by Rebecca Zandbergen , the broadcast will feature choral music to get you in the holiday mood, interviews with local food bank volunteers and a special musical performance by Kris Ruston.
