“We are very proud to be participating in the Media’s Big Food Drive once again this year,” said Derev Antikacioglu, Director, Brand Management and Social Responsibility, Astral Media Inc. Québec remains one of the provinces most affected by hunger with food banks helping hundreds of thousands of people each month, over a third of which are children. The entire Astral team is pitching in and making a heartfelt plea to all of its listeners, viewers, and many partners to give generously to the Media’s Big Food Drive.
Astral is proud to announce the participation of Philippe Laprise (starring in VRAK la vie and Ça sent drôle! on VRAK TV) as spokesperson for the Media’s 2011 Big Food Drive.
