More than 700 casseroles were collected during the “Casserole Challenge” presented Dec. 1 by Jewish Volunteer Connection, the volunteer arm of The Associated: Jewish Federation of Baltimore.  It was the most successful JVC “Live With Purpose Casserole Challenge” to date.

The casseroles will help nourish more than 7,000 people living in the Baltimore metropolitan region who are considered food-insecure.

Collection sites included Krieger Schechter Day School, the Owings Mills Jewish Community Center, Beth El Congregation and the Park Heights JCC.

Dropping off casseroles was a family event, dogs too.

The casseroles were distributed to a dozen organizations throughout the area, including  Living Classrooms, Soccer Without Borders, Baltimore Rescue Mission, Our Daily Bread, Grace Foundation, Manna House, DRU/Mondawmin Healthy Families, My Sister’s Place, Baltimore Station and Divine Light Treatment Center.
