Prepare a Meal

Volunteer to prepare a meal!

Thank you for volunteering to prepare a meal for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit! Many of our families do not have the time or energy to prepare a healthy meal for themselves, as they spend most of their time at the hospital with their child.

We appreciate your desire to make life easier for our families and this guide will help you use your time as productively as possible. Please read through it carefully before you sign up for a time slot.

Choose a date to bring food, and prepare meals for our residents. If your time is limited, help the residents by dropping off favorites such as sandwich trays or pizzas.

To make a meal for the families at the Ronald McDonald House of Detroit, please call our front desk at 313-745-5909.
