Last year's Food Bank Day

Every holiday season CBC British Columbia's Food Bank Day harnesses the generosity of the community to help feed the hungry. This year marks the 27th edition of the event, which will see CBC open houses in Vancouver, Victoria, Kelowna, Kamloops, Prince Rupert and Prince George on Friday, December 6.

George will be on hand in Vancouver Friday, and will be appearing on The Early Edition, BC Almanac/North by Northwest and On the Coast. Other CBC personalities will be there as well to meet and greet, including Yannick Bisson, Suhana Meharchand, Gloria Macarenko, Tony Parsons, Stephen Quinn and Sheryl MacKay. There will also be performances from Aaron Pritchett, the B.C. Boys Choir and The Silver Belles.

The doors at CBC Vancouver's broadcast centre open at 5:30 a.m., and people are encouraged to drop by with food or cash donations for a local food bank. You can also donate online at any time and call into CBC's pledge lines at 1-866-226-4642 on Friday. 

"CBC Food Bank Day is the number one event for food banks around British Columbia," says Marilyn Herrmann, President of Food Banks B.C. "It has a wonderful history, raises an amazing amount of money and has a profound and positive impact on communities of all sizes in this province."

At the same time, six CBC stations across Ontario will be celebrating their annual Sounds of the Season events. In Toronto, Metro Morning host Matt Galloway will kick off a full roster of events starting at 5:30 a.m., featuring live performances by Serena Ryder, Nikki Yanofsky, Amanda Martinez and Chris Hadfield, a silent auction and more. Telephone (1-855-768-7222), online and on-site food donations will be accepted until December 31, 2013.
