CBC’s Food Bank Day comes to TCC on Friday

The CBC/Radio-Canada’s Food Bank Day arrives in Kamloops on Friday, Dec. 7, at the Tournament Capital Centre.

“This is a very special year for us in Kamloops,” said Johnny Michel, managing director of CBC British Columbia.

“With the opening of our Kamloops bureau and launch of Daybreak Kamloops in September, this is the perfect opportunity to support this important community need.”

CBC Radio One’s Daybreak Kamloops will broadcast from 6 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. with host Shelley Joyce and musical guest Sabrina Weeks of Swing Cat Bounce.

The Okanagan’s afternoon show, Radio West, with host Rebecca Zandbergen will be live from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The show will feature choral music, interviews with local food-bank volunteers and a performance by Kris Ruston.

The public is encouraged to join in the activities and make a donation to the local food bank.
