Do you believe that you make the best casserole in town? Are you up for the “Casserole Challenge”? Can your casserole make the world a better place?
On Monday, March 25, Jewish Volunteer Connection will bring together casserole connoisseurs and creators alike for its “Live with Purpose Casserole Challenge!”
Community members are invited to prepare and donate frozen casseroles to feed an estimated 200 local families and 1,000 individuals, many of whom are experiencing food insecurity.
The collection sites for the “Casserole Challenge” will be at the Owings Mills Jewish Community Center, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 1 to 3 p.m.; the Park Heights JCC, 5700 Park Heights Ave., from 7:30 to 10:30 a.m. and 2 to 4 p.m.; and at LifeBridge Health & Fitness, 1836 Greene Tree Rd. in Pikesville, from 9 a.m. to noon.
In November, JVC’s “Live With Purpose” volunteer opportunity brought in more than 500 casseroles that were donated to myriad area organizations, including Living Classrooms and Dru/Mondawmin Healthy Families.
A program of The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore, JVC matches volunteers with hands-on service projects in the Baltimore metropolitan area throughout the year.
Organizers of the “Live With Purpose” program request that casserole makers include a label identifying the type of casserole and ingredients in their donation to enable families to determine which options work best for them.
