Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 134 people are interested

We developed our Meals that Heal Program in hopes that we could give our families one less thing to worry about during their stay with us. Individuals, groups of friends, business associates, etc., come to use the House’s kitchen to prepare brunch/lunch/dinner for our families during their stay with us while their child is being treated in the hospital.

If you don’t enjoy cooking, but would still like to provide dinner for our families, you can contact a restaurant of your choice and order dinner to be delivered to the House.

We ask that groups be less than 10 people, average time spent at the House can be between 1 hour and 3 hours, depending on the meal you choose to cook. We ask groups to bring all ingredients necessary for the meal. You are responsible to cook for 25 people.

Average cost of the meal can range anywhere from $40-$400.

About Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley


Located at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital, 1 Woods Road, PO Box 299, Valhalla, NY 10595, US

Mission Statement

Our mission at Ronald McDonald House of the Greater Hudson Valley is to provide a home-away-from-home for families of critically ill or traumatically injured children.


Our new house will accommodate 12 families each night in private bedrooms with baths. The House also includes a fully equipped kitchen, laundry facilities, play room and lounge areas.

A family can stay at the House as long as their child is receiving treatment at Maria Fareri Children's Hospital. On average, a family will stay at the House for 7 nights; however, families have stayed with us for as long as 9 months.

Although our actual cost is approximately $100.00 per night per family, we only ask for $15.00 per night per family to stay at our house. We never turn a family away due to inability to pay.

Our House is accessible to our families 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. The office is open 7 days per week from 9am-9pm.


We'll work with your schedule.
