Challah for Hunger

Challah for Hunger is an international organization that raises money and awareness for hunger through the production and sale of challah bread. For all the volunteers, and many of the customers, Challah for Hunger provides opportunities to be involved in a fun and dedicated community while addressing humanitarian problems, developing and practicing new skills, like baking and marketing, gain business and leadership experience, engage in the Jewish traditions of challah and tzedakah (justice), become involved in advocacy and other forms of activism, and more.

We support two organizations that help further Challah for Hunger's mission:
1. Swipe Out Hunger that partners with students and campus administration across its 90-chapter network to develop anti-hunger programs on campus.
2. The Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry that provides food, personal care items and community resource referrals among people of all faiths and backgrounds in the Greater St. Louis area. The Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry is run by Jewish Family & Children's Services
