CBC Sounds of the Season

Help make the season more kind

Join us as we partner with CBC Thunder Bay for a month-long celebration of community and kindness in support of families in Thunder Bay.

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


As the demand for food banks reaches an all-time high in our community, you can support the RFDA through the CBC Sounds of the Season 2023 Campaign. You can help make this a memorable holiday season for people facing hunger. 


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