Interview: How to make your food drive bank better

With the arrival of the holiday season, thousands of British Columbians volunteer and give to charity in order to offer a helping hand to those in need. The BC Poverty Reduction Coalition (BCPRC) recently launched a holiday campaign to raise awareness of the need for action both in the short-term (giving to charity) and the long-term (establishing a comprehensive Poverty Reduction Plan for BC), since this province is one of the last in Canada without a Poverty Reduction Plan, and since it has had the highest poverty rate in the country for the last 13 years.

On Dec. 14, 2013, Gil Aguilar (BCPRC’s Communications and Outreach Assistant) spoke at Vancouver Coop Radio’s Redeye show about the BC-PRC’s holiday campaign “How to make your food bank drive better: Add upstream action”. You can hear the interview here, and visit the campaign’s page here.
