Bake a Difference
Sunday, March 29, 9:30-11:30am
Challah for Hunger (CfH) builds communities inspired and equipped to take action against hunger. We have over 100 volunteer-led chapters across the country and internationally. Each chapter comes together to bake and sell challah, donate the profits to local and national anti-hunger organizations, and engage in education and advocacy activities to take action against campus hunger. This year we are launching programs for families with young children across the country and are excited to bring CfH to Boston.
We're looking forward to baking a difference with you! This event is an opportunity for families with children to come together to braid challah and learn more about Challah for Hunger's programming. Each participant will leave with a challah to bake at home! Geared towards families with children ages 4-8.
