This holiday season, help fight hunger in Ottawa. Join CBC Ottawa on Friday, Dec. 13 at the National Arts Centre for our annual charity drive, Project Give, in support of the Ottawa Food Bank

Starting from 5:30 a.m. with host Robyn Bresnahan and the Ottawa Morning team, CBC Ottawa will be live from the National Arts Centre for a full day of broadcasts, musical performances and more. Stick around after the show and have a coffee with the Ottawa Morning crew at Equator Coffee Roasters.

Don't miss a very special noon-time concert on the Thorsteinson Glass Staircase followed by interactive community programming.

All In A Day with host Alan Neal will take the stage in Peter A. Herrndorf Place in the afternoon. Watch the live show from 3 to 6 p.m. and enjoy musical performances, great conversation and a few surprises.

This year, as part of Project Give, you can participate in DIY workshops in advance of the main event. Paint, create and come together as a community to fight hunger and make a lasting change in our city with the Make Change workshop series. All proceeds will go to the Ottawa Food Bank.

Every month, thousands of people are helped by the Ottawa Food Bank. Project Give is about bringing the community together, raising awareness and funds for non-perishable and fresh foods. Last year, Project Give raised nearly $200,000 with the help of CBC listeners.

Stay tuned for more information about special Project Give programming in the NAC public spaces.
