Prepare a meal that heals

After a long day at the hospital, there’s nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. Get together with friends, family or co-workers to plan a menu and prepare a comforting meal for our families. We provide the kitchen, you provide the food. Whether a one-time event, or a monthly date, we invite you to come to the House and share your culinary skills with our families.

For more information about providing a meal at the Ronald McDonald House, please contact Rene Carlin at rcarlin@rmhc-ctx.org.
