Preston & Steve’s Camp Out For Hunger

Preston & Steve’s Camp Out For Hunger

 

Camp Out For Hunger is the largest single sponsored food drive in the country and it is successful because of you. – Steve Morrison

This year will be our 26th Camp Out For Hunger collecting non-perishable food donations for Philabundance. The event would not happen without people like you coming down with donations.

We realized that very early in the history of this event. So we plan lots of fun activities to give you a second reason for making the trip. The first reason of course is to help your neighbors in need!

This page has a full list of all the evening events we’re executing that week. All events are free to attend in return for bringing a donation. Scroll down and you’ll see that Food Trucks and Fireworks is happening early in the week this year. There’s a new event plus an classic activity returning.

We look forward to seeing you in the tent!

  • About Preston & Steve’s Camp Out For Hunger:

    This will be Preston & Steve’s 26th annual Camp Out For Hunger collecting non-perishable items for Philabundance to support those in need. The 93.3 WMMR hosts actually ‘Camp Out’ in the parking lot of Xfinity Live inside the Wells Fargo Center Complex for the week-long broadcast.

    During the five days, they invite listeners to come down, watch the carnival-like show. Each morning is filled with new guests, games, stunts… and yes, carnival rides.

    The family friendly event is free to attend, they ask that everyone bring non-perishable food donations or purchase donations from the on-site ACME Market pop up store.

    The Preston & Steve Show broadcasts live from 6a – 10:30a, then hand the mic over to legendary mid-day host, Pierre Robert who keeps the party going until 3pm, when afternoon WMMR DJ, Brent Porche takes over until 7pm. Resident Vampire DJ, Jacky Bam Bam is known to do a shift or two from South Philly as well.

    The first Camp Out For Hunger in 1998 collected 1 TON of food. In 2022, the generous folks of the Delaware Valley donated 2,821,949 pounds of food and $1,078,254. That’s an all time total of over 22 million pounds of food donated to Philabundance.
