Every week Scripps College Challah for Hunger makes and sells around 60 challah loaves raising about $200 weekly. Wondering how we accomplish so much in so little time? Here’s the procedure:
Sign up to volunteer HERE
1. Make the Dough
Thursday 1:00pm – 2:00pm (Malott Kitchen)
Every Thursday afternoon the Dough Manager uses our special challah recipe to make plain, vegan, and (during the month of October) pumpkin dough. Volunteers are welcome.
2. Braid the Dough
Thursday 5:00pm – 6:30pm & 6:30pm – 8:00pm (Malott Kitchen)
Every Thursday evening there are two shifts for braiding dough ( 5-6:30 & 6:30-8) in which 4 volunteers and a manager come together to chat, listen to music, and braid delicious dough.
3. Bake the Dough
Friday 9:00am – 10:00am (Malott Kitchen)
Every Friday morning the Baking Manager (rotating position) paints the dough with egg wash (except for the vegan of course) to make it shiny, sprinkles a little salt over the plain loaves, and bakes the dough in the Malott Kitchen ovens. This is a fun opportunity to see and participate in a busy kitchen early on Friday morning as the Malott staff prepare for lunch. Volunteers are welcome.
4. Sell the Challah
Friday 11:00am – 12:00pm & 12:00pm – 1:00pm (Seal Court)
Every Friday the Sales Manager along with 4 volunteers (2 for 11-12 shift and another 2 for 12-1 shift) sell challah in Seal Court. Saleswomen get the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of Seal Court while interacting with happy CfH customers and practicing their customer service skills.
During sales the Advocacy Manager brings the weekly letter or petition for customers to read and sign in order to learn about social justice efforts worldwide and take action.
Challah sells at $4 for a large loaf, $3 for a mini loaf ($1 off when you sign the advocacy letter or petition). CASH ONLY
