Recipients include Harambe Center (formerly Kids Safe Zone), Living Classrooms, St. Francis Neighborhood Center, Sarah’s Hope Mount Street. 

Jewish Values in action:

  • Chesed- kindness
  • V’ahavta L’reacha Kamocha- loving your neighbor as yourself
  • K’vod He-ahnee- respecting the poor


  •       Disposable casserole tin (usually 12 x 10 inches)
  •       Ingredients for your favorite casserole dish

  1. Make your favorite casserole/meal in the casserole tin.
  2. Place a label on the cover of the casserole with an explanation of what you made and any key ingredients or common allergens.
  3. Freeze casseroles or make sure they are freshly delivered.
