CBC Sounds of the Season 2023 Campaign

December 1, 2023 to December 31, 2023

Join us as we partner with CBC for a month-long celebration of community and kindness in support of food banks across Ontario.

Every year CBC hosts the Sounds of the Season fundraising and food raising campaign in the month of December. Since 2002, CBC Sounds of the Season has raised over $10 million in support of GTA and Ontario food banks.

As the demand for food banks reaches an all-time high across Ontario, support Feed Ontario through CBC Sounds of the Season 2023 Campaign to help make this a more memorable holiday for families facing hunger.

Your support today will ensure that families experiencing hunger can access nutritious food this holiday season.
