CBC Toronto listeners donate more than $418K for local food banks

·1 min read

CBC Toronto's wonderful audience has already donated more than $418,000 to support those facing food insecurity Friday, as our annual fundraiser Sounds of the Season gets underway.

The big jump comes from a generous donation from several major banks headquartered in the city, as well as a donation-matching offer from the Toronto Foundation. There are also a number of challenges worth bidding on, including a chance to win a script from Kim's Convenience.

It's different this year due to COVID-19, no doubt, but Metro Morning got the day started by playing some classic holiday tunes and there will be more special programming throughout the day.
