Cornell Hillel provides logistical, financial, and spiritual support for diverse groups under the Hillel umbrella.
Challah for Hunger
Have you ever been curious about baking challah? Do you want to fight for food justice in Ithaca? Challah for Hunger is a group of students who work each week kneading and baking challah to benefit our local community. Each week they sell their uniquely flavored challahs on campus. All proceeds from the sales go to our local food bank. Students from all backgrounds are welcome to join us each week to bake together as a community!
Please contact Sarah Frieman with any questions. Challah for Hunger is not selling their challahs on campus this semester due to Covid-19 restrictions. However, they are still functioning as a student led organization.
