Preston & Steve’s Camp Out For Hunger

Last year’s Camp Out for Hunger donations totaled 2.6 MILLION pounds of food – that’s over 1,339+ TONS of food  – plus $200,000 for those in need. That single collection accounted for more than half of Philabundance’s food drive donation for the year.

And we could not do it without your help! 

This year’s Camp Out for Hunger will be much different due to COVID restrictions, but we are planning to have zero contact food donations area outside our broadcast in the parking lot of Xfinity Live! inside of the Wells Fargo Center Complex. So while you are out shopping, please consider picking up a few extra items to bring to the Camp Out (Nov 16 – Nov 20). Philabundance has provided us with a list of the healthy food items they are seeking for the community:


  • Creamy peanut butter (Plastic containers only)
  • Canned/shelf-stable meats (Including tuna)
  • Shelf stable white milk
  • Canned beef stew
  • Canned chili
  • Breakfast cereal or hot cereal
  • Nuts/ trail mix
  • Whole wheat pasta
  • Brown Rice
  • Jelly (Plastic containers only)
  • Canned fruits & vegetables (low salt, no high fructose corn syrup)

Only boxes, cans, plastic containers or non-breakable jars and which do not have to be refrigerated can be collected.

  • Beverages of any kind, including bottled water, juice or sugary drinks
  • Potato chips, cookies and other unhealthy snacks
  • Seasonal Items (i.e. cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie mix, peppermint flavored items, holiday themed items)
  • Bread and baked goods (which go bad quickly)

If you are not able to make it out this year, you can donate right at the register of your local Acme Market. The Acme Head Start Program this year will run through the week of Camp Out until November 25th.
