Thank you for providing a meal for guest families at the Ronald McDonald House!

We have compiled several ideas for your group to help narrow down a menu but please don’t limit yourself to our suggestions!

Remember: All entrees should be served with one or two sides and/or green salad (mix-ins kept separate), a starch (pasta, bread, rice, or potatoes) and a dessert. Please check with the Meal Program Coordinator to see what pantry staples and drinks are available at the time of your meal.
