Thank you for your interest in volunteering at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House. Volunteer shifts are scheduled daily and are generally two hours long for both baking or preparing a meal. Shifts are available seven days a week.

  • baking/grab and go snacks from 10am-12pm (every day)
  • lunch from 10am-12pm (Saturday and Sunday)
  • baking/grab and go snacks from 1pm-3pm (every day)
  • dinner from 3-6pm (every day)

Because we serve immune-compromised guests, we have some prerequisites for in-person volunteers. Our current prerequisites can always be found on our volunteer webpage: https://www.rmhcidaho.org/volunteering/

All minors must be accompanied by an adult who has also registered to volunteer.

If you get scheduled to volunteer, you are responsible for providing a meal or baked goods for the families staying at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House. You are welcome to invite up to two other volunteers to join you. As the volunteer, you decide what you would like to prepare. All foods must be prepared either in the Ronald McDonald House or in a commercial kitchen. Volunteers can send a recipe or list to check on ingredients, but we cannot guarantee that your requested ingredients have been donated in advance of your shift. If we do not have any ingredients, please bring those items in new and unopened packaging. We have a fully stocked kitchen and carry most of the basic supplies.

The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho now has online registration. Once you are registered, you can view online calendars for baking, meal preparation and House projects. Please visit our website to complete a registration, view calendars and sign up for shifts: https://www.rmhcidaho.org/volunteering/
*All volunteers must complete a registration at least 24 hours prior to their shift.

Mission Statement

OUR MISSION: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho supports families of ill or injured children by keeping them together in times of medical need. OUR VISION: Making families the center of our purpose, we will: • Provide them with a safe and secure place for healing filled with hope and comfort. • Invest and strengthen healthcare partnerships to meet families’ growing and changing needs. OUR VALUES: • We are caring, friendly and supportive. • We are nurturing and family centered. • We act in a manner that is professional, responsive and respectful. • We celebrate our heritage. • We operate with accountability and transparency.


Since 1988, the family of any hospitalized or ill child receiving treatment at a Boise medical facility has found a home away from home at the Idaho Ronald McDonald House. Families come from across Idaho, Eastern Oregon, Northern Nevada and beyond. The House serves hundreds of families each year that face many challenges with their sick children.

Providing these families with a safe, supportive, welcoming place to stay is the reason the Ronald McDonald House exists. The staff, volunteers and Board of Directors help to meet basic needs and provide more than just the necessities. With the help of all the supporters of the House, families are provided shelter, food, support, and care.
