Rock 101 has taken its show on the road to raise money, food, and awareness for all food banks.
From 6 to 10 a.m. on Thursday morning co-hosts Bro Jake Edwards, Alece Anderson, and Darcy Strachan set up shop in front of Friends In Need Food Bank to broadcast their program.
"Corus Feeds Kids and Rock 101 are trying to raise money for the food bank and for kids," said Bro Jake.
"We are leading the pack. Maple Ridge is really supporting this event. I love Maple Ridge because I'm from a small town too - Moncton, New Brunswick," he said.
Joanne Olson, executive director Friends In Need, said the campaign was a success.
"We've made $2,500-plus since 6 a.m. and we still have another hour to go," Olson said during the Thursday event.
"It's been a steady flow of people coming and going," she added.
Corus kicked off a two-week awareness campaign Thursday with Corus Feeds Kids Day, a day dedicated to raising funds for local food banks to help end childhood hunger across the country.
Brian Gibson, with Rock 101, said the goal is to raise $3 million during the next three years.
