We've partnered with Matt Blatt Kia and Matt Blatt Nissan to hold a radiothon to raise money to feed the hungry in Atlantic, Cape May, and Cumberland Counties.

Your donation of just $25 will be enough to provide 75 meals to those in our area who are hungry. A $100 donation? That's enough to provide 300 meals to the hungry.

Here's how Matt Blatt Kia and Matt Blatt Nissan are helping: They are matching every dollar that is donated to the radiothon - up to $25,000 in total.

Townsquare Media radio stations in South Jersey are doing this radiothon in association with the Community Food Bank of New Jersey, and their Egg Harbor Township donation.

The Community FoodBank of New Jersey works hand in hand with more than 1,000 community partners in the fight against hunger. New Jersey faced a disproportionate impact from COVID-19, with a rise by 56% in food insecurity—greater than the expected increases nationwide and in our neighboring states of New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware.

We thank you for considering to donate. If you'd like to give, you can make your donation via this secure link via the Community Food Bank of New Jersey:
