We know breakfast is the most important meal of the day! This is especially true for families with sick children. Starting a long stressful day off right is important, which is why we offer a wholesome and nutritious breakfast six days a week.
We understand that sometimes it is hard to leave your child in order to purchase meals. Our Food Programs Team is pleased to prepare and provide nutritious lunches to families at the JPCH Pediatric Emergency, Dube Youth unit and Alvin Buckwold Child Development centers on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays to make this part of their day just a little easier.
Cinnamon, vanilla and baked apple smells are heartening and essential in creating a “homelike” environment in our kitchens.
At Ronald McDonald House, our cookie trays are always full and coffee is always on for a comforting snack or something to grab & go.
Most families arrive at the House never expecting to have a sick child. With our stocked community pantry, no family goes hungry. Families are welcome to build their own lunch from the Community Pantry
