Your contribution of a casserole will make 
a difference in someone's life.
  • Follow one of the recipes listed below, check the website for additional recipes (www.thejewishcenter.org/Participate-With-Us/Social-Action)or use your own recipe.
  • Aluminum tins and pre-printed labels are available in the TJC office or use your own disposable tin.
  • After you bake your casserole, BE SURE TO COVER WITH SEVERAL LAYERS OF ALUMINUM FOIL. Freeze.  Then put the casserole in a plastic bag and bring to TJC's dairy freezer (kitchen on the left).
  • To make sorting easier for our deliverer, print a label (www.thejewishcenter.org/Participate-With-Us/Social-Action), mark the checkoff box for "Tuna," "Bean/Lentil," Pasta/Cheese" or "Other" and tape to your casserole.
