Make dinner at The Ronald McDonald House

  • Mar 21, 2013 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

What a great opportunity! I love the Ronald McDonald House and love anytime I can help out. Please read the bottom of this post to find out what RMH does. Everything is donated at the House, included all meals. We have the opportunity to make dinner for them.


Here is how it works: We provide the ingredients (again because everything is donated) and we also prepare the meal. We need to prepare enough to feed about 30-40 people. And we are going to make extra so we can eat with the families.


Instead of assigning everyone to bring something, I thought it would be best to collect money, and I can do all the shopping. Last time it came to $14/person. It will not be more then this.


We are only aloud 12 people total. But no more than 8 cooks in the kitchen at one time.


Since this is so important (they won't have dinner if we don't make it) please make sure you can make it before you RSVP. Last minute cancellations would really hurt us.


I will create a menu, and do all the shopping. I will have a game-plan ready when you arrive. What needs to be done and when. Last time it when really smooth. We have enough volunteers, and everything was ready on time. The families said it was one of the best meals they have had in a while.


If you have a recipe for a great dish, send me a text. Please no spaghetti or taco salad. They get that almost every night. Lets be creative, and make one of the best meals they have had this year.


Parking: Free Street Parking. They also have a parking lot just south of the house.

Time: 4pm-8pm (If you can't make it by 4pm, that's ok. 5pm or 6pm will work. But we do need some there at 4pm)

Prep: 4pm-6pm (Plenty of time to make a nice dinner)

Dinner: 6pm-7pm

Clean Up: 7pm-8pm

Dress: Wear comfortable shoes, we are on our feet the whole time. Last time I wore dress shoes and my feet killed me the last hour.

*If you bring a child, they must be 14 years or older.


Looking forward to giving back and having a great night with you.

About the RMH (Ronald McDonald House)

Sometimes when a child gets sick they have to go to a hospital far from their famalies. And parents want to be with their child every second during such a difficult time. In fact, many would trade places with them in they could. Since they can't, they can at least be by their side.


That's exactly why there's RMHC. They have places where famalies can be together, because they believe children heal faster when they're with loved ones.

    was just informed we have a meeting in San Diego which most likely will run into the evening. I hope someone can take my spot. No need to refund me. My apologies for this short cancellation.

    Unfortunately I have to change my RSVP. I completely forgot I have a Board meeting that night. I'll try to make the next one. The last one you hosted here was great!

    Hi, has anyone taken Nadine's spot? This would be my first event, and I'm coming in from Riverside, so it's all a little daunting... but I'd love to join in with you guys! :) I'm from the UK and contrary to popular belief ha ha we have some really hearty, filling dishes that can be cooked up in no time for a large amount of people... Shepherd's Pie :) both meat and quern versions. Hope to see you guys some time soon x

      Stephanie, I misjudged the date for a Board Meeting I have to attend, so I need to give up my spot. I hope you can grab it if you are able to go. :)

    I would like to suggest an Asian food menu. Broccoli beef, veg egg fried rice, chow mein, kung pao chicken, garlic shrimp, (a vegetarian dish) so that way all in house will have an option for what they like and should be sufficiently complicated to keep 12 people busy. Plus I doubt that would normally be something anyone has attempted.

    • JJ

      I can help with recipes for Asian food.

    I'm unable to make the 4pm but can be there at 6:00 depending on traffic. Coming from Irvine Spectrum. I can also contribute for raising money.
