Challah for Hunger (CfH) announced today that our Chief Executive Officer, Carly Zimmerman, will be leaving the organization on Monday, August 19th to take on a new role as BBYO’s Senior Relationship Director after serving as CEO for six years. “I am incredibly grateful for my time with Challah for Hunger,” said Zimmerman. “I will be leaving CfH immensely proud of what we have achieved over the last six years and deeply appreciative of the incredible people I have had the opportunity to work with during my time here. I am excited to see the organization grow and continue mobilizing communities across the country to take action against hunger.”
We want to take a moment to thank Carly for her exemplary, committed work as CEO. Challah for Hunger is incredibly grateful to have had her transformational leadership grow our organization over the last six years. In her time with us, Carly doubled the number of local chapters, started the CfH Alumni Network, grew our advisor program, and spearheaded the launch of the Campus Hunger Project–and that’s just an ounce of her remarkable visionary leadership. She will be greatly missed by all of us at CfH, but we are also very excited for her as she takes on her new role.
While the Board forms a CEO search committee to identify a permanent replacement, Challah for Hunger’s Chief Operations Officer, Loren Shatten, will be assuming the position of interim CEO. Loren has been with CfH for over four years and has played an integral role in the organization’s leadership during that time.
