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.
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!
In February 2015, chapter leaders from the east coast came together in the City of Brotherly love for the Challah for Hunger Leadership Summit. Challah leaders shared expertise in chapter growth, advocacy and creative ideas on how to strengthen their chapters. This video is a snapshot of the fun, inspiring and of course, educational and informational weekend that these challah leaders experienced.

Did you know that 1 in 6 people in America face hunger?
In an effort to decrease the number of hungry Americans, the Challah for Hunger Alumni Giving Circle, a group of CfH alumni, are teaming up to give 2-3 grants of up to $5,000 to local non-profits fighting hunger.
The Alumni Giving Circle will accept nominations from Challah for Hunger alumni, selecting 3-5 semifinalists to research and finally selecting the 2-3 grant recipients. If you’re involved with or know of a local non-profit that is fighting hunger, now is your chance to support their work.
To nominate, you must be a CfH alum. The organization must be a registered 501(c)3 with a focus on hunger. You may nominate up to 3 organizations, each with separate forms. The process will close on July 31st at midnight PST.
