We have two volunteer kitchens where a group can come in and bake a sweet treat, make
some to-go meals, make a savory snack, or help with our casserole club.
This is great opportunity for a group of students coming in and wanting Silver Cord Hours or a group of coworkers who have VTO from their company.
Baking Program: After a long day at the hospital, having our families come “home” to a sweet treat or a yummy snack is a great way to the day.
To-Go Meals: A great way we serve our families is by preparing a sack lunch for them every day. Families will often take to-go meals as well as volunteers will pick up lunches and provide to families staying at the hospital. To-Go lunches are a great way to ensure caregivers who are
tending to their ill or injured children and still provide a meal during their hospital stay without
worrying about the cost of the meal.
Casserole Club: We attempt to schedule a meal provider to prepare a meal for our families who stay at RMH. However, there are times we are unable to secure a meal provider or there is circumstance were the provider needs to cancel. Therefore, we have the Casserole Club as a contingency plan in place to ensure our families still have a home-cooked meal.
