5 Questions with Sarah Horwitz

For the past year, Sarah has helped us connect with new communities in Philadelphia for our “Beyond the Campus” program. As she finishes her time in Philly, we asked her about the weird, wonderful and doughy experience:

What brought you to Challah for Hunger?

I am a Fellow at Repair the World working on food justice issues through volunteering and program planning. As part of this fellowship program, I partner with organizations to create volunteer programming and to recruit volunteers. I was lucky to be paired with Challah for Hunger to help run the “Beyond the College Campus” Program. This year, I have been organizing bakes for different organizations around Philadelphia. I have been able to create curriculum teaching hunger issues and have been able to hone my challah baking skills!

Braiding Bread to Help Others Break Bread

ByJane Yamaykin, Jewish Food Experience 

If matzah is the bread of affliction, challah is the bread of…what? That’s what I wondered to myself when I started researching, during Passover, no less, Challah for Hunger (CfH), a growing social justice organization started at Scripps College in 2004 by then-student Eli Winkleman, which became a registered nonprofit in 2009 and is now headquartered in Philadelphia.

According to Ana Mendelson, a college senior and current University of Virginia Chapter President, “Challah is the bread of getting people excited to stop hunger and engaging in that process, no matter where they are in life.” Talia Berday-Sacks, former University of Maryland Chapter President and current Program Associate with CfH, offered simply, “Challah is the bread of reflection.” She went on to explain that CfH volunteers often begin by examining questions such as: What is challah? When and why is it eaten? Expanding beyond the tradition of challah, a seemingly commonplace bread, to the questions it brings up about community and food helps start important conversations at CfH chapters.

Sneak Peak: 2016 Summit!

82 days until the 2016 Challah for Hunger Leadership Summit! We have quite the conference planned for this year. Students from across the country, alumni, friends from MAZON, West Chester University, Montgomery Community County College, OneTable and more are all coming together for three days of knowledge sharing, advocacy, networking, and of course, challah baking!

We are excited to announce that we will be launching our new advocacy campaign at this year’s summit! Challah for Hunger and MAZON have partnered up to create an advocacy campaign focused on addressing hunger on college campuses. Students will have the opportunity to learn from local and national experts and develop strategies and skills to advocate for change.
Every day that passes brings us closer to our favorite part of the year! We are looking forward to seeing all the challah faces we can at the summit this July! Students can click here to register.
