Once again, the CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre is opening its doors to the public for a day of fundraising and fun to support the thousands of citizens that rely on food banks in B.C.

Now accepting donations!


Join us Dec.1 for a special day of live programming, a chance to meet your favourite CBC personalities and a behind-the-scenes tour of our newsroom.

700 Hamilton Street

Live broadcasts in Studio 700: 6 a.m. — 6 p.m.

In the midst of plenty

While our province may be wealthy and rich in resources, thousands of citizens struggle to provide their families with the basics. With over 100 food banks in B.C., CBC/Radio-Canada's Open House & Food Bank Day helps those in need, including children, seniors and the working poor.

Donate online anytime or on Friday, Dec. 1. Call our pledge lines or visit us to give in person.
