Make A Meal
Thank you for your interest in preparing a meal for the families at the Ronald McDonald House. Whether it is an old-fashioned recipe or a sandwich tray from the local deli, meal groups truly make our House a home. Food prepared with compassion and care is the ultimate “comfort food” for our families.
We have 21 bedrooms, so plan on preparing food for between 25 and 30 people. Before you sign up to prepare a meal, please read the guidelines below.

- If this is your first time preparing a meal for the Ronald McDonald House, please contact Hannah Caton at 847-5435 for a brief orientation of the kitchen and pantry. At least one representative must attend.
- Due to the size of our kitchen, no more than six people may be in a meal group.
- Please do not bring children.
- Plan to have dinner ready between 5:30 pm and 6:00 pm.
- All meals must be prepared at the House unless it is coming directly to the House from a commercial kitchen.
- We encourage you to use items from our pantry. You are welcome to visit our pantry before your scheduled date and see what we have available for your use.
