A HUGE thank you goes out to everyone who came to the first Charm City Casserole Cook-Off! Not only were the entries stupendous–but we had wonderful judges (Monyka Berrocosa, Linda Rittleman, Ms.Dorothy Peace and Ms. Juanita Garrison) and photography provided by Sulakshana Bhattacharya. Becky Kuk gave everyone the scoop on Whitelock Community Farm and some of the participants got to walk down the street to see the Farm first hand.

Check out the pics here.

Many of the current food/urban agricultural projects that are occurring across the city of Baltimore are focusing on food accessibility and nutrition consciousness-raising. A logical next step is to get people cooking.

Casseroles are a familiar food and easy to make. They can be made with easily sourced ingredients and can be made at a variety of health and price points. So get cooking so we can all get-to-eating!
