Adopt a Meal & Families

The Adopt-A-Meal Program ensures that the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House have nutritious meals without taking precious time away from their children. You are welcome to make a once-a-month, quarterly, or even once-a-year commitment to help these families in need. Any mealtime (lunch or dinner) is welcome.

Volunteers are needed to provide meals for the families staying with us. Volunteers can either cook a meal at the Ronald McDonald House or drop-off a catered meal for as many as 30 to 40 house guests (depending on the current occupancy).

Whatever way you choose, our families will be very grateful!

Feel free to visit our website https://rmhcsouthflorida.org/adopt-a-meal-rmhc and select your desired date. For any questions, call our office (786)476-2177 or via email miamiadopt@rmhcsouthflorida.org
