Fighting Hunger Together During the Holiday Season
When you think about the Holidays, what do you imagine?
I picture holiday music, ugly sweaters, family, warm eggnog, and eating too much food. Yet, this is not a reality for thousands of families during the holidays.
According to Feeding America, 1 in 8 people struggles with hunger.
And in the Philadelphia region, 1 in 3 children live in poverty.
That’s why the holiday season is also a great time to help the countless families in need.
“If we’re going to end hunger, we have to do it together. We can’t do it alone.”

Fighting hunger together with Camp Out For Hunger and Philabundance.
SocketLabs helps fight hunger by supporting a non-profit food bank called Philabundance, at the Camp Out For Hunger Event.
Camp Out For Hunger is hosted by Preston & Steve™ of WMMR. It’s the country’s largest single-location food drive. This food drive accounts for more than half of Philabundance’s food drive donations each year.
Last year, SocketLabs made a radio appearance on the Preston & Steve show during the Camp Out For Hunger Event. You can listen to the clip here.
In 2015, Camp Out For Hunger raised approximately 1.1 million pounds of food and $160,000 for those in need. We’re looking forward to the results of Camp Out For Hunger 2016.
