After a long, stressful day, have you ever wished that you could arrive home to dinner already made? You can grant that wish for our guest families! You don’t have to be a world-class chef to prepare a tasty, home-cooked meal. Volunteers like you make a tremendous difference in the lives of our guest families and the feeling you get from helping others will feed your soul.

Please note: Meals must be either prepared or assembled at the Ronald McDonald House whenever possible. Food prepared in commercial cooking establishments such as restaurants, catering services, or cafeterias and then brought in or delivered is acceptable. We no longer accept drop-offs or leftovers.

When can I serve? Dinner is served 7 days a week at 6 p.m. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday at 11 a.m. Friday dinner is a designated “Pizza Night” for our families. We hope you will join our kitchen!
