Vancouver Radio Food Bank Love
It’s that time of year again when local radio stations decide to broadcast remotely from various locations around the Lower Mainland in hopes that area folks will stop by and open their hearts and wallets to donate to a good cause.
Here’s a roundup of broadcast locations and charities:

* RICHMOND: 6140 Blundell Road (No. 2)

I just have to say though, kudos to 95 Crave for actually supporting the Food Bank of the community in which they will be broadcasting. Stations used to move around to various cities but it seems to be a trend now to stake out one location for an entire week. The point of moving was to get support for that particular city’s Food Bank, then move onto the next. Not sure about the reasoning there but don’t forget your local Food Banks folks, ie. Surrey, and the Tri-Cities.
