COOK A MEAL FOR OUR FAMILIES ~ Adult, Teen, Group Opportunity

Families who are spending long days and nights with their hospitalized children may come to San Diego's Ronald McDonald House to enjoy three meals daily at our "home away from home." Hot, nutritious meals give these exhausted and overwhelmed families the chance to relax and connect with others who understand what they're going through. 

Around 300 volunteer groups serve meals for our families each year. We welcome your help, and it's a great way to connect with families. It's easy! Just organize your group of 6-16 people, choose one of two options for preparing the meal, and complete a Dinner Reservation Form.


What time do we serve the meal? 

Breakfast 7:00-8:30 a.m.
Lunch 12:00-1:30 p.m.
Dinner 6:00-7:30 p.m.

Where do I park? 

Parking structure under the House or on the street. We provide a maximum of 10 discounted parking vouchers per group, so carpooling is appreciated. Note that there is no charge to leave the parking structure after 8:30 pm and parking is free on weekends. 

Does the House accept food donations? 
Yes! Families have the option to cook for themselves, in case they are at the hospital during mealtime, so we always need canned goods and dry goods for the pantry.
