IC Challah for Hunger was founded in the Fall semester of 2013.  Basically, Ilana Wolf was familiar with the program from her sister’s college and wanted to share all that Challah for Hunger has to offer with the Ithaca community. Ilana’s sister would bring delicious challah home from the Binghamton chapter and once she heard about it, she immediately knew that she wanted to bring it to Ithaca. It brought together two of her favorite things: baking and social justice! Click here to read more about our chapter at Ithaca. Close
