The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester, Minnesota, provides nutritional support to families in the form of groceries and meals. These programs are some of the most loved by our families. With your help, we are not only able to provide a nutritious meal, but it is one less thing for families to worry about.

We need your help! There are three ways you can be a House Dinner Hero:


VOLUNTEER YOUR GROUP: The Ronald McDonald House of Rochester House Dinner program is an opportunity for volunteer groups to plan and serve a healthy, balanced meal for our guest families. This opportunity serves as an excellent way to volunteer, bond with your group, and support our mission!

House Dinner Volunteer Requirements

  • COVID-19 vaccination: all volunteers must provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19
  • All volunteers must be 13 years of age or older, with at least one adult present for every four youth under age 16

SPONSOR A MEAL: Don’t have the time to cook a meal on-site? No problem! Your group can sponsor a catered meal to be served to our families. Contact Katie Arnott, Volunteer Director to learn more!

DONATE: Having a hot meal after a long day can make such a difference for families during the critical care of a child. If you are not able to donate your time, you can still make a difference to this critical part of our mission. Please click here to donate for nutritional assistance.
