Challah For Hunger at Elon: Think global, give local

Challah for Hunger at Elon University was founded in 2013 to show students how they can “bake change” and help others while growing stronger as a community.

Students gather once a month at the Sklut Hillel Center to knead, braid, and bake, make new friends, and have fun while making a difference.

Challah for Hunger sells the fresh baked bread on campus, and proceeds go directly to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC, which provides food, nutrition education services, tools for effective advocacy and more.

Challah for Hunger is a national social justice-focused organization with more than 80 chapters across the world, all of which work to build communities inspired and equipped to take action against hunger. In 2018 the organization mobilized more than 10,000 volunteers who came together to bake more than 53,000 loaves of challah and donate almost $160,000 to 164 different local hunger relief organizations and MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, an international organization.
