Radio For Relief is Friday, March 19th from 7 - 10 AM!

March is Minnesota Food Share Month and YOU can make a BIG difference with Radio for Relief!

The Kandiyohi County Food Shelf can take your $20 cash donation and purchase almost $200 in food from Second Harvest Heartland.

Because of the great partnerships and generous donations from our community, Radio for Relief has raised nearly $600,000 in combined cash and food donations since 2006!

We will not be broadcasting live from the Kandiyohi County Food Shelf as a safety precaution due to COVID-19, but we still want to share your Radio For Relief collection totals on-air. 

When you organize a cash/food collection at your business/organization, church or with friends & family, we want to share your Radio for Relief collection totals on air! CLICK HERE to email MaryElin Macht before NOON on Thursday, March 18th to include your totals and possibly pre-record an interview that could be featured during the Radio For Relief Broadcast!

Donations add up quickly when we work together.

Families, individuals, churches, businesses and organizations are all encouraged to participate in Radio For Relief!
