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 for January will be taco night, when you RSVP please sign up for one of the following:

1. Ground Beef

2. Beans

3. Sour cream and guacamole

4. Green Salad

5. Chips and Salsa

6. Taco Shells

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.

      It was nice to meet you. And we all enjoyed your guacamole! :)

    I always bring the drinks and I will also bring refried beans and taco spices.

      Hi Stacy, are the spices gluten free? I thought I would bring some, too...but won't, if yours are GF. :)

      Hi Laura: You can bring special taco spice, but when we cook at Ronald McDonald House, we make enough for the House Guests; if there are leftovers, we sometimes will eat after all of the guests have been served.

    Hi Laura, Great! We meet at the house at 5, serve dinner at 6, and then usually finish cleaning up by about 7:30

      Thanks for letting me know! I need to tell some people I will be late meeting up with them. :)

    I will bring the beef instead of the salad, because it is more crucial that we have that!

    I will bring a bag of tortilla chips and a thing of salsa, and cheese (I didn't see it on the list though!)
