Fighting off the quarantine 15

‘A huge step in the right direction:’ Students react to Weinstein’s guilty conviction

Hungry for change
UB’s Challah for Hunger is holding its annual Campus Hunger Awareness Week from Nov. 18-22 in response to roughly 41% of four-year university and community college students who “do not know where their next meal is coming from.”  Challah for Hunger, a national organization taking action against hunger, will be selling and delivering fresh challah, a Jewish pastry, for $3 throughout the Buffalo area. Chabad of Buffalo has offered its house and supplies for the cause. Students on the Chabad board and Greek Life volunteers will be baking the challah. Patrons must preorder challah through Challah for Hunger’s online form by Nov. 15 and the group will bake and deliver the orders on Sunday Nov. 17. All proceeds will go toward local hunger relief through FeedMore WNY, a collaboration between The Food Bank and Meals on Wheels.
