Challah for Hunger brings people together to bake and sell challah to raise money and awareness for social justice.
We make a difference in the world by investing in the next generation of entrepreneurs, social activists, and philanthropists.
Liz and Nick, two of our CfH alums hosted their first Alumni Event in Atlanta, GA. The event brought together new and old alumni to express their creative sides with a challah cover crafting activity! The afternoon was fun, messy and allowed alumni to make something beautiful together and take it home.

Loren joined the challah team with two years of social justice experience under her belt (She was a Repair the World Fellow in Philadelphia). Loren is bringing her knowledge of food justice and hunger issues to her new gig:
I was surprised to learn about the how misleading the marketing around food can be. For instance, it was upsetting to learn the realistic definitions of cage free chickens and free range chickens. I always thought the term “cage free” sounded like a very humane way to raise chickens for eggs. I recently learned that eggs can be labeled “cage free” but come from farms where hundreds of chickens are crowded into a barn, and still the name is considered fitting and legal for this situation.
Loren (pictured here, middle) also loves Cleveland. Email her for recommendations.
Earlier this month, two of our leaders, Elana and Talia went to the BBYO International Leadership Conference (ILTC). At the conference they taught student leaders about service learning using Challah for Hunger as an example. Students worked together to create pitches and learn about advocacy with a “meal mapping” activity from our partner org MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. After learning, students took turns pitching ideas and events to each other as the event came in full circle – teaching to learning to teaching. We’re excited for these students to become future CfH leaders!
