As the semester goes on, the resource guide will be updated. "Our resource guide that we are creating is still growing and I don't think we will ever really be done with it…We are always adding to it," Price said.
At this time, the resource guide is available to UMass students and can be found here. It includes information on the location of food pantries, available emergency aid funds and scholarships and meal plan sharing programs.
The CfH chapter will host four bakes throughout the fall semester. The first dough making night was on Oct. 3 and the first braiding and baking night will be on Oct. 4. The challah will be sold at the Campus Center on Oct. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for $3 a loaf. Flavors will include plain, plain with sugar, chocolate chip and their special fall flavor, apple cinnamon.
During these sessions where the challah is prepared, 10 to 20 volunteers usually help in the basement of the Hillel House. This semester, Sternklar and Price hope to include an advocacy portion to these events so volunteers understand why these events take place and the underlying issues.
CfH will be selling challah on Oct. 25, Nov. 8 and Nov. 29 with dough making and baking events on the Wednesdays and Thursdays of those weeks. Dates for spring events will be announced at a later time.
