Gather your friends, family, co-workers or church members together to cook a meal for our families through our Cooks for Kids or Pantry to Plate Programs. These are wonderful opportunities to get involved as a volunteer at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City. Your donation of time, energy and often food is essential to our mission to provide a caring uplifting environment for the families.  Before proceeding to sign-up for the meal program, please review the cooking guidelines to learn more.
