There is an estimated 13, 280 individuals who lack access to food in Tompkins County. Just last year, Ilana Wolf started the Ithaca College chapter of a national organization, Challah for Hunger, in order to raise awareness to the issues of hunger and poverty. 

IC Challah for Hunger works to bring people together through baking and raising awareness to social issues. Wolf said the student organization combines her love of baking and her dedication to combatting social justice issues. 

"It's just really great to bring everybody together and make an impact on the local Ithaca community and wider community," she said.

Each week, some of the members gather to bake Challah bread and sell the items in the Campus Center. The money collected is donated to the Food Bank of the Southern Tier and to Mazon, a Jewish response to hunger. Wolf said her student organization raises a total of around $400 per semester

 Critical Health Issues, HLTH 20500 is a 3 credit online Summer Course offer during the two week May Session.  ICC Attribute: Diversity. Social Science. Self and Society. ICC Theme: World of Systems.

Below is a summary of the course content. Please contact Stewart Auyash at auyash@ithaca.edu for more information.

 

Critical Health Issues is about the evolution and analysis of U.S. health policy and the provision of health services, a vast enterprise that includes all sectors of government and industry.  In the U.S.,  health and medical establishments account for about 1 out of every 10 workers and about 17 cents out of every dollar spent. Even with the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, there are still more than 25 million people without insurance.  Health is also about racial, gender, ethnic, and class issues, as well as the quality of services received and overall health status. The poor, immigrants, and minorities are also affected by inequalities. Poverty is increasing in the U.S. and this affects health.

The following is submitted on behalf of Yvonne Rogalski, Chair, James J. Whalen Steering Committee:
