Bring Casseroles to Neighbors in Need

The Casserole Challenge on GivingTuesday 2021, organized by the Jewish Volunteer Connection in Baltimore, rallied local volunteers and businesses to roll up their sleeves and prepare a comforting classic – casseroles. The goal was to provide much-needed nourishment to the community, particularly those facing challenging circumstances. Over the course of the challenge, volunteers poured their hearts and culinary skills into creating more than just lasagnas; they cooked up hope, compassion, and happiness. The group provided over 1,000 casseroles to 13 local partner organizations. The recipients found more than sustenance; they encountered a taste of home, a moment of respite, and the knowledge that their community cared deeply for their well-being.
