The meal program is one of the most valued services available at San Diego’s Ronald McDonald House, typically serving over 120,000 meals a year. Free meals served with a smile by caring volunteers help to sustain families in the round-the-clock care of their hospitalized children. With COVID-19, we’ve had to close day-use of our House and suspend volunteer meal service. Yet the need for meals hasn’t ended, especially for those with the most critically-ill children, whose treatments can’t wait.
Temporary To-Go Meal Service
We have adapted to provide to-go meals at our House entrance. Each meal comes wtih an additional pre-packed bag that has a bottled drink, utensils, napkin and a cookie or some type of sweet. We’re serving over 200 to-go meals daily.
Ways to Help Provide To-Go Meals
Give online: It’s easy to make an online gift for meals. We’ll apply your gift to where it’s needed most urgently for meals.
Shop online for us: select food and supplies from our Amazon wish list for delivery.
Donate Items: We welcome donations of packaged items to put in the bags, such as commercially packaged cookies, chips, granola bars, and fruit chews. To-go containers are especially needed! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call Krysten Conn at 858-598-2430 to arrange curbside drop off during business hours.
Want to cater to-go meals, or order a hot meal for in-House families? It’s a great way to support your favorite restaurants, too! Individually boxed servings work best, but we can also repackage restaurant half pans on site. Please contact email@example.com or call Krysten Conn at 858-598-2430 for arrangements.
