Reaching out casseroles is a collection of helpful recipes and casserole-type dishes that can be prepared ahead and dropped off to help out a friend, family, or neighbor in need of some support.

Reaching Out Casseroles- How to help family or friends in need

There comes a time when things just seem to fall apart for friends or family in your life, sometimes it’s due to a job loss, sometimes it’s due to an accident, a birth, a medical emergency, and sometimes death. For those folks going through one of these situations, the last thing on their mind is preparing healthy, filling meals for the family (or guests that are often dropping by!)


Reaching out Casseroles

Casseroles are wonderful because they can be prepared in small or large quantities, as needed. These are dishes that are typically prepared in 9″ x 9″ or 9″ x 13″ aluminum foil pans – and only need to be heated in the oven for 20-30 minutes to serve.

Other non-food helpful things you can do:

  • Drop off a large (clean!) trash can with fresh bags, paper plates, plastic ware, and napkins. Chances are the family will have numerous people coming and going and will need lots of plates/plastic ware.
  • Rake (if needed) or mow the lawn, shovel the driveway (winter storms), or even the roof, if necessary

What are your favorite dishes that feed a large number of people fairly inexpensively?
