UCLA


Challah for Hunger at UCLA started during the 2007-2008 year and has since grown tremendously. Now in our fourth year, CfH at UCLA has become a well-established and well-respected student organization that runs every week throughout the year. We at UCLA are all about the flavors. From sun-dried tomato basil to pumpkin to PB&J, we are always looking to express our culinary creativity. Our advocacy and education has also developed over the years. Working intimately with Jewish World Watch, an amazing Los Angeles-based organization that does advocacy, education, and direct refugee relief in Darfur, Chad, and now in the Democratic Republic of Congo, we have had phenomenal speakers, rallies, and amazing events in the greater Los Angeles community. It doesn't stop there. We have even expanded to working with several student groups on campus including STAND, Mighty Mic--an annual concert that selects an international human rights issue to advocate for and raise money, the Greek system, the Fencing Club, and the list continues. Our campus has raised over $20,000 so far and each year we just keep getting better. So come bake with us!!! Or if you are on UCLA campus on a Thursday morning, look for our blinged out Challah mobile on Bruin Walk.
