For 34 years, British Columbians have been generously donating to food banks at CBC/Radio-Canada's annual Open House and Food Bank Day, raising more than $13 million for food banks in B.C. since its humble inception in 1986. 

Our Open House and Food Bank Day is a yearly tradition for many, and we are happy to once again bring you a 35th annual virtual edition of CBC's Food Bank Day! 

On December 3, join us from the comfort of home for special broadcasts and digital Meet and Greets with your favourite CBC hosts and personalities!

A pandemic doesn't put a pause on the need for kindness and generosity.

Last year you blew us away by raising a record-breaking $2,721,112 for local food banks and this year, they need us more than ever.

A new report says food banks in Canada have seen a major surge in visits throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the high cost of living and ongoing economic disruption is bound to create countless new clients in the months ahead. Now is the perfect time to give back to your community.

And there are many opportunities to spread generosity and kindness aside from making monetary donations. Put a smile on your own face – and the faces of others – by spreading kindness in your community. This year, consider volunteering at your local Food Bank.
