Thank you!

British Columbians have very generously donated a record-breaking $2,967,719.26 to food banks since CBC B.C.'s 36th annual Food Bank Day on December 2, 2022. We are simply blown away!

CBC British Columbia has raised more than $16 million for food banks in B.C. since its humble inception in 1986.

Thank you for your generosity and continued support of B.C.'s food banks and the many people that rely on them.
