Cooking up casseroles

Casserole Kitchen offers homemade, frozen dishes to support the arts


A number of local restaurants are also donating frozen dishes for the event, contributing soups, chilis, pulled pork and more.

All of the frozen goodies find a home in the art center’s freezer along with an extra freezer being provided by Hoppie’s Refrigeration Service for the event.

Cost of the casseroles ranges from about $6 to $8 for smaller casseroles up to $12 for a 13- by 9-inch tray. Take it home and pop it in your freezer. Then, either thaw and heat up a pre-cooked casserole, or bake a prepared casserole according to directions.

In addition to the casseroles, expect plenty of baked goods, from cookies to cakes to pies and beyond.

Last year, the Women’s League raised $1,200 through the Casserole Kitchen that helped to supply computers for the art center. Kirchenbauer noted that Casserole Kitchen has been supporting the arts in Anderson for decades. The Women’s League originally started cooking things up for a fall festival that took place at the former art center on West Eighth Street 37 years ago.

“We try to promote music, programs in art, theater,” said Kirchenbauer. “We’re trying to promote the arts in Anderson plus support the art museum.”

Look for the casseroles and baked goods on Thursday, Sept.19, starting at 11 a.m. inside The Anderson Center for the Arts, 32 W. 10th St. during all the fun Oktoberfest activities. The Women’s League hosts monthly informative programs at the center as well.
