WMMR’s 25th Annual Preston & Steve Camp Out for Hunger is less than a month away, and Fishtown Pickle Project is doing its part to help the cause, which, while working with Philabundance, aims to fight hunger in the Philadelphia region.

Fishtown Pickle Project Co-owners Mike Sicinski and Niki Toscani have partnered with WMMR’s Preston Elliot to create a new pickle product – “Prestons’ Picks” – with a flavor profile that was inspired by Preston’s favorite Fishtown Pickle Project pickle: Zesty Sweet Garlic. Mike and Niki used warm spices and a zesty brine with locally sourced cucumber spears and mildly hot banana peppers on Preston’s suggestion, which resulted in a beautiful combination of sweet, spicy, garlicky, crunchy deliciousness. A portion of sales will be donated directly to Philabundance

“We had a blast coming up with this special product for Preston, and we are thrilled that a portion of proceeds from sales will benefit Philabundance,” said Toscani. “Camp Out for Hunger does so much to help combat hunger, and we’re happy to work alongside great people doing incredible things for the community. Simply put: eat Preston’s pickles, fight hunger.”

The limited-edition batch will be on sale on Friday, October 14th at noon at for $14.50 per jar and at farmers’ markets on the weekends while supplies last.

“I'm a pickle fanatic and was blown away by Mike and Niki's pickles when I first tried them last year,” said Preston. “I'm not exaggerating when I say they are the best pickles I've ever eaten. I am so excited that they asked me to partner with them on this product and raise some much-needed funding for Philabundance as part of our annual Camp Out for Hunger. You will love these pickles if you're a brine head like me!” 

Preston & Steve’s Camp Out for Hunger 2022 will take place from November 7th through the 11th in the parking lot of Xfinity Live! inside the Wells Fargo Center Complex. Learn more at

Fishtown Pickle Project was created by Chef Mike Sicinski and dietitian Niki Toscani in 2018 after gifting handcrafted pickles to their wedding guests. Their small-batch fare is purposefully crafted using all-natural ingredients and bold flavors, sourcing cucumbers and other produce from Muzzarelli Farms in Vineland, New Jersey.
