More than $500K raised at CBC's Food Bank Day

More than $534,000 has been raised so far in the 26th annual CBC British Columbia Food Bank Day.

You can still make a contribution to the Food Bank of your choice by donating online until midnight Sunday.

It was another year of celebrating the incredible and continuing generosity of the CBC audience. Millions of dollars have been raised and hundreds of thousands of British Columbians who need the services of food banks have benefitted from our annual event.

Again this year, CBC invited the public to come to the Open House at the CBC Broadcast Centre in downtown Vancouver to see how we make radio, television and digital programming.

More than 5,000 people took us up on the invitation.

Doors opened at 5:30 a.m. with Rick Cluff and The Early Edition live in Studio 700. From 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., visitors had a chance to tour CBC Vancouver's integrated newsroom and meet their favorite CBC on air personalities and reporters.
