Ronald McDonald House - Guest Chef

 

Ronald McDonald House - Guest Chef

What is the Ronald McDonald House?

 

Ronald McDonald Houses around the world offer families a way to stay together, in proximity to the treatment hospital, and be comfortable and cared for during their stay

 

What is the Guest Chef?

Coming home to a hot meal after a long day at the hospital can bring a great deal of relief to a family. This program allows you to help prepare and serve a meal to the families staying at the Ronald McDonald house. After the preparation is complete, you may join the families for dinner.

  • Family meals should serve approximately 20 people.
  • Dinner is served buffet style at 6:00 p.m.
  • Meals are prepared in our double kitchen.

What do I have to do to participate in this event?

We need to have enough food to serve 20 guests, and ourselves, so we can stay and eat. We will need to bring enough of each of the following items to serve a total of 28 people.  Our theme will be International Night: when you RSVP please sign up for one of the following:

1. Appetizer

2. Main Dish

3. Main Dish

4. Vegetable Side Dish

5. Salad

6. Bread of some sort

7. Dessert

8.Dessert

Directions:

From I -295: North Bound, take the first Forest Avenue Exit.  Southbound, take the second Forest Avenue Exit.  Turn right onto Forest Avenue heading east toward Portland.  At the light, bear right onto Route 77 through Deering Oaks Park.  Go through two sets of lights.  At the third set take a right onto Congress Street.  Take the second left onto Walker Street.   At the end of Walker Street, take a right onto Brackett Street.  Ronald McDonald House is the fourth house down on the left on the corner of Brackett and Carleton Streets.

    Hi Kiersten,
    I am very interested in participating in this event, and am willing to prepare anything where you may have a gap. Please let me know!

      Kiersten arranges it, and then posts a date and theme. If it's something you want to do, you sign up. If the event is "full" you will be on the wait list. Depending how many drop from attending, you may or may not be able to go. So keep your eye out for scheduled events, and sign up if it interests you! Hope this helps. :)
