Challah for Hunger seeks to advance social justice in Darfur and Southern California by harnessing the resources of the Claremont Colleges—its students, buildings, means of production, and discretionary income—to empower marginalized communities, alleviate human suffering, and create a more just and equal world. Our primary vehicle is challah. Fueled by an entrepreneurial ethos, we bake and sell nearly 400 loaves of challah each week, generating upwards of $1,250 in weekly profit earnings.
Challah for Hunger allocates 100% of its profit-earnings to non-profit organizations, maintaining durable partnerships with these organizations long after its initial donations. Letter-writing campaigns to elected officials, co-sponsored community events with partner organizations, and on-campus educational programming complement our philanthropic activities, animating students’ critical social consciousness and activism.
