Founded in January 2020 by UF Hillel, Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate® is a campaign to combat antisemitism and all forms of hate at the University of Florida and in our communities.

Every January, Jewish and non-Jewish Bagel Day student volunteers take over campus, inviting the Gator Nation to sign the Spread Cream Cheese Not Hate® pledge. In appreciation of their participation, signers are given a free bagel and cream cheese. While the symbol for this program may be a bagel, this work is about so much more - it's about engaging in conversation and an opportunity to build a coalition. 

Winner of Hillel International's 2022 Eleanor Meyerhoff Katz Innovation Award
