Camp Out For Hunger: 5th Annual Phil-a-Trunk, Literal Food Drive & Car Show
Now more than ever, your neighbors need our help.
The 5th annual Phil-a-Trunk is a literal food drive/car show where we are asking any and all car clubs of the Delaware Valley and Mainline Cars and Coffee to unite and drive out hunger within our region. Fill up your trunks, frunks, and beds with non-perishable food items and either drive down to Xfinity Live or meet there on Sunday November 12, 2023.
Phil-a-Trunk is kicking off WMMR Preston and Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger. Camp Out is the largest single-location food drive in the U.S. and benefits Philabundance, the Delaware Valley’s largest hunger relief organization. In the past two years Phil-a-Trunk has collected over 300,000 pounds of food. Phil-a-Trunk and Camp Out help Philabundance feed the 700,000 people in its nine-county service area who do not know where their next meal is coming from, or if they will have one at all.
Please partake in our added bonus: Fun Laps Autocross. Once your car is empty take a lap or two through the cones for fun timed laps, in which all donations also going to Philabundance.
We will stage all car clubs in the Wells Fargo Center parking lot, then each club will drive as a group to unload and weigh your totals. Phil-a-Trunk is shaping up to be one of the largest car events of the Philadelphia area.

Riesentöter is the southeastern Pennsylvania region of the Porsche Club of America encompassing 9 counties including, Philadelphia, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Berks, and Bucks. We have over 2900 members in our area that generates camaraderie through driving events such as Driver’s Education, Autocross, Street Survival, and charity. This is our seventh year in doing a literal food drive for Philabundance in conjunction with WMMR Preston and Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger..
For the past 8 years we have had a friendly competition between the Porsche Club and Jaxon’s Jeep Club to see who can bring the most food. Last year, together, the two clubs provided over 70 tons of food.
Just imagine what all the car clubs can do.
So now we make our drive even bigger by asking all area car clubs to get in on the drive and competition. Phil-a-Trunk is now the official kick-off event for Camp Out so please join us as we try to drive out hunger in the Delaware Valley.
Philabundance was founded by an idealist named Pamela Rainey Lawler who saw perfectly good food going to waste, and, at the same time, saw people going hungry.
What started out as a small food rescue organization operating out of a Subaru, 30+ years later, is an innovative, impactful and collaborative organization distributing more than 24 million pounds of food a year to those in need. Although the organization is proud of its growth over the years, there is still more work to be done: in Philadelphia, one in five people faces hunger. Philabundance can help people in need in Pennsylvania and New Jersey thanks to the support of community partners who donate time and food or funds.
Every donations counts:
- A one-pound donations helps provide one meal for someone in need.
- Just $1 can help provide up to two meals.
- With $20, Philabundance can buy a case of peanut butter, a delicious and crucial source of protein for kids.
- $50 helps give a four-person household three meals a day for one week.
Philabundance is bolstered by community partners and is also a proud member of Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks leading the fight against hunger in the United States.
Tale of the Scale 2022
The 4th annual Phil-a-Trunk, a literal food drive involving over 20 car clubs was held on Sunday November 6th, 2022 on a warm 74 degree day at the end of autumn.
First we want to thank our main sponsors Faulkner Auto Group and Cabot Creamery. Plus we had support from the Capital Grille in King of Prussia, along with Porsche of Conshohocken, Porsche of the Lehigh Valley, Porsche of the Main Line, and Porsche of Warrington and from Soul Performance.
So let us get right to it…a tremendous amount of food and monetary donations from all the car clubs came to a whopping over 140,000 pounds of food – over 70 tons people! That was including about $1200 made from the mini fun lap autocross which many seemed to enjoy.
