Adopt a Meal

Adopt a Meal – Ronald McDonald House

The Adopt-A-Meal program provides a much-needed service to families who are supporting their sick or injured children. This program invites the community to cook and prepare meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Salt Lake City.

Meal Options:

Sack Lunches: Mondays and Fridays, groups can sign up to purchase and prepare to-go sack lunches for families onsite at the Ronald McDonald House. We ask that sack lunches are prepared by 1:00pm. These lunches can include sandwiches/wraps, fruit/vegetables, snacks, and a drink that families can take on the way to and from the hospital.

Dinner: Purchase and prepare food for one main dish (with a few vegetarian meals), 1-2 sides, individual drinks, and provide to go containers, plasticware and napkins. Dessert is optional. We ask that dinner served at 6:00pm.

Groups will plan the menu, purchase food and individual to-go containers, prep the meal onsite and separate the meal into the individual containers.  Groups are asked to provide dinner for 50-60 individuals.

In order to keep this process safe for you, our guest families and staff, we have put some modifications in place for this volunteer activity:

  • 7 people or less
  • Agree to wear a mask during the entire time onsite at RMH and follow all health and safety guidelines
  • Show no symptoms the day of the meal

If you and your group meet these requirements and are interested in preparing a meal onsite or if you have questions, please email Kacie Pecor, kacie@rmhslc.org for more details.
