Our guest blogger this week is Sydney, the chapter president of CfH at Vanderbilt University. At least once a semester, the chapter volunteers with their local partner The Nashville Food Project to prepare food for the organization’s meal program.
I got involved in Challah for Hunger because I wanted to spend some of my time in college giving back to others, and I loved the idea of doing so as part of a Jewish community. Like Alexander Hamilton, our chapter here at Vandy is young, scrappy, and hungry. We’re a relatively new organization on campus, and although we are small, we work hard at our biweekly bakes and almost always sell out of challah! We love adding our own unique flare to our challahs, experimenting with new flavors including s’mores, pumpkin spice, red velvet, and so many more. We’ve also created a new preorder system that helps us to sell even more challah and raise more money for MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger and the Nashville Food Project. Last semester we raised over $800 -we are not throwing away our shot!
