“I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.”

Our Daily Bread is a hot meal program run through Catholic Charities that serves more than a quarter of a million meals to the hungry of Baltimore City each year. The casserole program is the backbone of this hot meal program. People from all around Baltimore contribute each month to help make this happen. St. Jane Frances de Chantal Parish provides casseroles to Our Daily Bread on the fifth (5th) Friday and the fifth (5th) Monday of the months when they occur. Our next delivery will be Friday, November 30, 2018.

Making a casserole for Our Daily Bread is easy and inexpensive. It can also be fun and a teaching experience in the Corporal Works of Mercy when you involve your children. Each casserole will serve approximately 6–8 hungry people.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Pick up a FREE casserole pan (or more) with recipe at the doors of the church.
  2. Make the casserole(s) up according to the recipe included.
  3. FREEZE the casserole and then bring to the parish office during regular business hours, 9am to 4pm, Monday through Friday.

If you are able to make a casserole but unable to bring it in, please call the Rectory Office at (410) 255-4646 and leave your name, address and a telephone number where you can be reached, and a volunteer will come to your home and PICK IT UP!

Our goal is 200 casseroles. Thank you for your generous support!

Want to do more? You can help!

There are about 15 people here at St. Jane Frances who do a bit more for Our Daily Bread. These are the folks collecting the casseroles and getting them to Baltimore each month. When asked why they do this, a few responded.

“I started doing it hoping to help make this world a better place to live for all. I get self satisfaction realizing that I have at least tried.”

“It makes me feel good and Jesus would want me to do this.”

If you would like to know more about helping, contact us at the office so we can pass your information on to this committee.
