Make Dinner at Ronald McDonald House - 6 Volunteers

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)


Jeera Aloo (Indian Cumin Potatoes)
Kidney Beans
Basmati Rice


Please note that there is now a $3 charge to sign up for this event. This is NON-REFUNDABLE, whether you attend or not. We hope this will both assure that only those who are serious about attending will sign up – this will allow more people to have access to this very popular event. It will also help to raise funds to pay for the dinners so we can keep the event going, as voluntary donations are currently not covering the costs. You may still change your rsvp if something comes up between when you sign up and the date of the event, but you will not receive a refund on your $3 donation. Thank you!

These dinners are paid for by us (the volunteers); RMH does not cover the costs. If you'd like to contribute financially, please PayPal a donation to [masked].



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.

If we all agree we can go out for a drinks afterwards.Feel free to make suggestions.


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.

    I'm still interested. I wasn't quick on the trigger finger with payment and I think the organizer bumped me for the next person.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
