A Big Welcome to our Summer Intern, Nikki!
How did you learn about CfH?
I am a recent graduate from West Chester University. Towards the end of my last semester, the Director of Service-Learning and Volunteer Programs introduced me to Loren and Carly from Challah for Hunger. She thought I would be able to meet with them and provide some insight about West Chester University because WCU is hosting the Summit in July! The rest is history!
What do you do at Challah for Hunger?
So far, I have done some data entry and rearranging contacts to make it more organized for my colleagues to send emails, newsletters, etc. I also started working on creating the social media posts for the month of June, which is a lot of fun!
Learn anything interesting so far?
In this new role, I am able to use the various subjects I learned in undergrad and I have learned more about the non-profit industry. I have also learned that Challah for Hunger collaborates with so many different campuses and organizations, it reinforces my viewpoint of how important it is for everyone to come together to make a difference.
What's your favorite Challah flavor?
My Tia Sarah's recipe! I'm not entirely sure what it is called, but it has the most amazing flavors and raisins in it!
Challah for Hunger has spent this past year expanding our programming to new communities! Check out what's baking at JFCS in Philadelphia.

Last year, six alumni collectively gave away thousands of dollars to two hunger fighting organizations. Want to join the Challah for Hunger alumni Giving Circle this year? The Giving Circle meets on video chat a few times over the summer to learn about compelling hunger charities and give funds to support them.

Here's how it works: dinner hosts get a $15 credit per person (up to $150 per dinner) redeemed online for groceries or dinner delivery. Head over toonetable.org/hostto get started.
