Food Quality for Casserole Donations

Our Daily Bread requires a strict protocol to maintain food quality for all casserole donations.

How to cook your casserole

  • Follow the recipes that Our Daily Bread provides on its website. Do not make any changes. https://www.catholiccharities-md.org/services/our-daily-bread-hot-meal-program/
  • Wash your hands and cooking utensils.
  • Bake the casserole in a metal, disposable 12 X 10-inch pan that is 2 and 9/16 inches deep.
  • Freeze the casserole before donating. This is a critical step as the casseroles are stacked and will ooze out of their containers if not completely frozen. 
  • Cover casserole tightly in foil and label the outside with the date, name of the recipe, and your name.

How to donate your casserole

  • The Community Bowl will be collecting casseroles Monday, February 18 and Monday, March 18 in the lobby of the Mary Fisher Dining Center.
  • Collections will take place from 9 to 10 a.m. both days.
