During Sukkot of 2019, the Students of Hillel for Utah will be raising funds for the Feed U Pantry, a food pantry for students at the University of Utah who are experiencing food insecurity.

According to the Feed U Pantry: 

The University of Utah food pantry provides non-perishable, nourishing food for our students, their families, faculty, and staff. Why? Because there are times when we all have struggles: Loss of a job, paying tuition, medical emergencies. The basic demands of life sometimes make us have to choose between food or bills. We don’t want any member of our Campus Community to have to choose between having some food on the table and keeping up with the emergencies that come up.

We’ve set up a sukkah on campus at the University of Utah, where we are hosting our first-ever 24 hour Rock-A-Thon!

What is a Rock-a-Thon? Hillel for Utah students have pledged to stay in our campus sukkah for 24 hours, over hour-long shifts. The catch is, one person must be rocking in a rocking chair the entire time.

This 24-hour period will begin Wednesday, October 16 at 8 PM, and end the next day, Thursday, October 17 at 8 PM. We are collecting donations in whatever amount you would like to give, and all proceeds will be donated to the Feed U Pantry.

The Hillel for Utah community thanks you for your generosity in the fight to ease hunger in Utah!
