Join our annual Casserole Challenge on Tuesday, November 28

Each Thanksgiving, we see an amazing display of community spirit as hundreds of folks come together to bake a casserole (or, three) for our annual Casserole Challenge. This initiative is all about lending a hand to feed thousands of children and adults in Baltimore facing food insecurity. Taking part is simple: bake a casserole, pop it in the freezer and then swing by one of our drop-off spots on Tuesday, November 28. Your effort can make a world of difference!
