Food Donations for Our Daily Bread
The Classic Casserole Program at Our Daily Bread has been the backbone of the feeding program that has sustained the poor and homeless in Baltimore since 1981. Any sized group of concerned citizens wanting to affect hunger in our community may participate.
Select one recipe to make for your entire group. You can view our recipes here to help you find a recipe or feel free to come up with your own. We definitely are always in the need for new recipes. If you have a new recipe that you want to provide, please call us first to make sure it is a recipe that will work in this setting.
Can't bake? Not a problem...for those in your group that aren't bakers, a family size Stouffer’s macaroni and cheese frozen meal is a wonderful contribution.
We do require that you use a uniform disposable pan. These can be obtained in quantity at wholesale food clubs, or we can provide pans at a cost of $41.00 per 100. If you want to purchase them yourselves, they are a ½ size pan with dimensions of 2 9/16 inch deep and 12x10 inches.
Storage Before Drop-Off
Most groups and churches that have a casserole program have casserole bakers that commit to baking once a month. They are:
- Covered tightly in foil,
- Labeled with the date and name of recipe and group,
- Frozen in the home,
- The group has a drop-off point (usually a church or business parking lot) on a designated date
- Have drivers bring them to Our Daily Bread Employment Center
We have this on our calendar, and we know when they are coming and how many. This allows us to plan in advance.
We accept deliveries every day of the week between the hours of 8am to 3pm.
Please deliver the casseroles early in the day so we have enough staff here to help unload. Don't forget...Always fill out a delivery receipt.
Become a Part of The Classic Casserole Program
Whether you decide to do a one-time event or you would like to be a regular participant, please the volunteer line at 443.986.9031 so we know when and what casseroles to expect.
We ask that you have a designated group or parish coordinator that runs your program, and is the contact for us, if your participation will happen monthly. We greatly appreciate your generosity and time with helping Baltimore's most vulnerable citizens.
