Care & Serve
We are low on Caring Casseroles.
Caring Casseroles don't have to be casseroles. They can also be side dishes, soup, stew, chili, grilled chicken, or cooked burgers or pizza slices. Labels should include all ingredients or better yet, include the recipe. 
If you make a meal that meets specific dietary restrictions (low sodium, gluten free, etc.) please mark it that way--it helps the volunteers distribute meals appropriately. 

Drop off days at Clare Hall are by last name:
