Today, CBC Ottawa hosts Project Give: an annual charity drive in support of the Ottawa Food Bank!
Throughout the day, CBC Ottawa’s Project Give programming will introduce people who are making this holiday season brighter by sharing food and showcasing acts of kindness in the community. This day focuses on sharing the stories of people and organizations helping make an impact in our city by fighting hunger, together.
Every month, tens of thousands of people are helped by the Ottawa Food Bank and the network of food programs with whom they partner. Your support through CBC Project Give makes an important difference in their lives.
How can you get involved?
This year, there are 3 ways to give:
• Donate online by clicking HERE!
• Donate by phone! Call 613-714-HELP (4357) on Friday, Dec. 10 from 5:30AM to 7:30PM (phone lines are only active during this time)
• Visit us in person at Irene’s Pub during the special concert put on by All in a Day from 3PM-6PM, to hear Nayana, the Miguel de Armas Quartet and Twin Flames.
Here’s an overview of CBC Ottawa’s Project Give programming for today:
5:30 to 8:30 a.m / CBC Radio One 91.5 FM or on the CBC Listen app
Wake up with Ottawa Morning and host Robyn Bresnahan for a day of storytelling that highlights the importance of community giving — especially in the pandemic.
Tune in to hear deserving listeners (as nominated by you) receive random calls of kindness from Canadian celebrities. We can’t tell you who, though, or we’ll ruin the surprise. Plus, Robyn will kick off the sounds of the season with local musicians — including Amanda Rheaume, pianist John Kofi Dapaah and The Lionyls — who’ll be bringing you live music as part of a special at-home concert series.
12PM to 1PM / CBC Radio One 91.5 FM or on the CBC Listen app
Join host Amanda Pfeffer for a special Ontario Today with Rideau-Rockcliffe Coun. Rawlson King, her guest for an open line show with callers who’ve relied on food banks and have thoughts on how to reduce hunger.
All in a Day
3PM-6PM / CBC Radio One 91.5 FM or on the CBC Listen app
Join host Alan Neal for a special All In A Day where he’ll bring listeners together over the radio and online to tell the stories of the Ottawa Food Bank’s clients, volunteers and service providers. Throughout the show, guests from some of All In A Day’s most popular features will gather in virtual spaces to share their own fundraising efforts for the food bank.
This year, special musical programming will be held at Irene’s Pub on Bank Street in the Glebe from 3 to 6 p.m. Stop by — no tickets or reservations necessary — to hear the country folk-pop of Nayana, the Cuban jazz of the Miguel de Armas Quartet and the powerful songs of Twin Flames. An Ottawa Food Bank representative will be on site to take donations in lieu of a cover charge. Drop by for some great local music!
