5 Questions with Sarah Horwitz

For the past year, Sarah has helped us connect with new communities in Philadelphia for our “Beyond the Campus” program. As she finishes her time in Philly, we asked her about the weird, wonderful and doughy experience:

What brought you to Challah for Hunger?

I am a Fellow at Repair the World working on food justice issues through volunteering and program planning. As part of this fellowship program, I partner with organizations to create volunteer programming and to recruit volunteers. I was lucky to be paired with Challah for Hunger to help run the “Beyond the College Campus” Program. This year, I have been organizing bakes for different organizations around Philadelphia. I have been able to create curriculum teaching hunger issues and have been able to hone my challah baking skills!

Have you met Loren?

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.
