Cooks for kids

Gather your friends, family, co-workers or church members together to cook a meal for our families. This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved as a volunteer at Ronald McDonald House Charities of Kansas City. Your donation of time, food and energy is essential to our mission to provide a caring uplifting environment for the families.

 

 

The meal program involves preparing dinner, lunch or brunch for guest families staying at a Ronald McDonald House or Family Room. All food items served in the Houses must be cooked in our kitchens or a commercial kitchen for the safety of our guests. Please see the chart below and links to more information about each location option.  All meals must be scheduled in advance. Please contact volunteering@rmhckc.org with questions.
