All right: it's a great day to help fight hunger by supporting your local food bank. CBC personalities and shows across the country are coming together to raise funds and gather food donations.

So if you're free, come and visit your local CBC building for some awesome events and the chance to meet some CBC personalities.

Just make sure you bring along a non-perishable food item or two, or a cash donation to help local food banks.

Here's a guide to what's happening where.

CBC Vancouver Open House & Food Bank Day - Donations Accepted 5:30 am - 7 pm, Open House 8 am - 6 pm

George will be at CBC Vancouver all day, so come hang out with him, as well as Peter Mansbridge, Ian Hanomansing, Adam Beach and Pascale Hutton from 'Arctic Air', Graham Wardle, Jessica Amlee and Alisha Newton from 'Heartland', David Chilton from 'Dragons' Den', and Erica Johnson and Tom Harrington from 'Marketplace'.

There's also a tour of the newsroom on offer, and lots of sweet prizes to be won. Don't miss it.

CBC Toronto Sounds Of The Season - 5:30 am - 6:30 pm

Hit the CBC Broadcasting Centre in Toronto for Sounds of the Season. Tons of cool stuff is happening all day, including a performance from Nelly Furtado, plus live broadcasts of Metro Morning and CBC News Toronto.
