CBC Vancouver's 32nd annual Open House and Food Bank Day took place on Friday.

The CBC Vancouver Broadcast Centre was open to the public for a day of fundraising to support the thousands of British Columbians who rely on food banks.

So far, we've raised $730,151.

Last year, thanks to the generosity of our donors, we surpassed our fundraising record with a total of $802,049.
