Dinner and Project Leader Q&A at Ronald McDonald House

We will provide, cook, and serve a meal to low-income families of children with life-threatening illnesses living in Ronald McDonald House. (SF: Western Addition)

Menu

Grilled kalbi

Firecracker noodles

Strawberry mascarpone tart

Schedule

6:00-7:00pm: Volunteers prepare a meal for 20-25 people.

7:00pm:  Serve dinner and eat with some of the staff and residents of the Ronald McDonald House. Sometimes only a few residents can join us for dinner. We always make plenty for leftovers so families can eat whenever they return from the hospital.

7:40-8:00 pm: Clean up, pack up left-overs.

What is the Ronald McDonald House?

San Francisco is home to several well-known childrens' hospitals-- UCSF, Kaiser, and CPMC-- that attract patients from as far as Oregon and Las Vegas. Because hotels are so expensive, the families of the patients (usually pre-term babies) often sleep in their cars or hospital chairs. Ronald McDonald House SF provides an alternative-- a temporary home with ten rooms in the Western Addition-- where families can stay and socialize with others families in similar situations and volunteers.
