The House That Love Built


Come to the House and cook dinner for our resident guests! Prepare food for 40 people, to be ready to serve at 6:00 PM. We ask that from the food you prepare, you box up enough for about 15 people and transport it over to Mercy Hospital for the families utilizing our Family Room Facility. We have everything you need to prepare dinner and transport Family Room food (pans, pots, utensils, containers, crock pots, baking dishes, etc...) - bring in your ingredients or check our cupboards for grocery items as well. Volunteers create the menu!

Casseroles, crockpot dishes, meat and vegetables, pasta dishes, sandwiches and soups are just a few great menu ideas.

For more information or to volunteer regarding these meal opportunities please contact, stacy@rmhdesmoines.org

There are still a few dates available in September and October and quite a few in November adn December.
