Ronald McDonald House2555 49th StreetSacramento, CA 95817


Here at the Ronald McDonald House we try to keep the families well-fed and provide them with plenty to prepare. HOWEVER, once a week we try to have another group or family come in and prepare a large meal for our guests. We house 38 families, and the food must be provided by the group and be at least enough for everyone who wants some to have a bit. All of the food must be prepared on-site (unless prepared in a commercial kitchen), and there is a small training required on the day of the preparation that takes about 30-45 minutes to complete that goes over our food-safety procedures. The group will arrive here at 3 PM on a Friday, and the food will need to be prepared by 5 PM. At or shortly before 7 PM we will team up to portion whatever food is remaining in order to keep it for families who are at the hospital and unable to attend the event. We have plenty of kitchen space, as well as outdoor grills for the preparation of many different types of cuisine and volumes of food. E-mail me with interest and some details of what you would envision as your intended recipes and we can go from there!

*This event is typically fairly costly. So, the ideal group is sponsored by a company, or restaurant that can provide the food for approximately 120 people, beverages and cups, as well as paper plates, plastic cutlery, serving dishes, etc. We provide only aprons and gloves and the facility.
