Campus Chapters: How does it work?
Every week, thousands of students across the US, Canada, and Australia continue the centuries-old tradition of baking challah and practicing social justice (tikkun olam).
While the dough rises, students discuss local and national campus hunger issues and discuss advocacy tactics to address food insecurity on campus. After baking, the students sell the challah on campus to their peers, faculty and community members.
50% of profits from challah sales go to Swipe Out Hunger to support national anti-hunger advocacy efforts and 50% to local nonprofits fighting hunger in their community.

The first place I felt truly welcomed in 2015 in my strange new city of Pittsburgh was when I sat down with a room of complete strangers on a Thursday afternoon to braid challah. When I learned that everyone in the room was motivated not only from the immediate joy of baking, but also by the knowledge that the challah would be sold and the proceeds donated to hunger relief charities, I knew I had found my place on campus.
