Open house CBC and Food Bank Day

Today CBC/Radio-Canada open their doors from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to support the food banks in British Columbia. It is the 24th year of the CBC British Columbia Food Bank Day. All the local and regional radio shows broadcast special programs to help inspire your generosity towards those who need the services that B.C. food banks provide. In tandem, they invite everyone to come to our state-of-the-art CBC Broadcast Centre in downtown Vancouver to see how they make radio, television and digital programming.

Meet on-air personalities, tour the integrated newsroom and help your local food bank by making a donation. It’s a day full of great entertainment, exciting activities and heartfelt generosity.

I’m going after work for a quick look, because I think it’s worth it and since I try to naturalise as good as I can, I think this is a really Canadian thing to do¬†ūüėČ
