The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House supports families of seriously ill children by creating a community of comfort and hope. Our programs include two Ronald McDonald Houses, two Ronald McDonald Family Rooms, and Ronald McDonald Camp.
One of the many services that the PRMH provides for the families is the Meal Program. The evening meal is a welcomed relief for families as they return from a long and often exhausting day at the hospital. The dinner not only provides the families with a nutritious meal that might otherwise be skipped, but it also creates an opportunity for families to interact with one another, share their stories, and learn from people who are in similar situations.
Families greatly appreciate the time you spend to make their day a little easier. Thank you again for your interest, and for offering to take time out of your schedule to help our families.
What we'll be doing
We will be preparing a meal for 35 to 40 people. We will be cooking the meal there, starting at 3PM. Our menu consists of ... a dinner salad, whole, carved chickens, roasted potatoes, steamed carrots, and a dessert. We have a fully stocked preparation area with four stoves and ovens and plenty of pots and pans available. After the meal, we will clean up and get together closeby for our own meal!
What you should know
The Ronald McDonald house asks the groups to provide the dinners and we are asking every volunteer to bring a whole, roaster (not roasted!) chicken. We will be cooking the chickens at the Ronald McDonald House. Ask Melissa if you have any questions
