Dinner is Served

There’s nothing better than a warm meal at the end of a long day. Businesses, church groups and civic organizations provide evening meals for our families most days of the week. Here is how the program works:

  • Contact us or call us at (402) 346-9377 to select an evening to prepare & serve dinner. Click on the Event Calendar to view the dinner group schedule and look for available days.
  • Recruit 5 to 10 volunteers to help.
  • We strongly ask that you do not bring more than 10 people with you due to space restrictions. Having large groups intimidates the families which can discourage them from joining in with dinner. If you have a large group of interested volunteers, we suggest you look into booking two nights to accommodate your group.
  • Select your menu. RMHC staff can always give you suggestions.
  • Purchase the food. You can prepare it off-site and bring it to the Ronald McDonald House,® or use our kitchen.
  • Arrive at about 5:30 p.m. to prepare for dinner at 6:30 p.m.
  • Dinner is served buffet-style. We provide the soda and cups.
  • Join our families for dinner.
  • Clean up and store the leftovers in the House refrigerator.
  • Know that you have done a nice thing for families that are having a difficult time.
