Sounds of the Season

Food bank use across the GTA has reached crisis levels.  Join the fight to end hunger with a holiday gift to your local food bank. 

With over 2.3 million client visits to food banks this past year in Toronto alone, your generous support is greatly needed. 

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

Since 2002, CBC Toronto Sounds of the Season has raised over $10 million in support of food banks in the GTA and across Ontario.
