Volunteer Information for Groups at the LARMH

Group Volunteers consist of groups of friends, families, corporations, civic or religious groups and lead an array of activities for the families of the Los Angeles House. Volunteering groups provide families with an opportunity of respite during a highly stressful time. 

Meal of Love

The meals you provide bring love into the House, allowing families to unwind, de-stress, and fortify their bodies to be at their best for their child in the hospital. Groups of up to 15 people (or 20 people, if there is an activity included) choose a menu, purchase the ingredients, and prepare the meal in our full service kitchen, allowing families to find nourishment and comfort in a shared meal. Breakfast is served daily at 9:00 am, dinner is served daily at 6:00 pm.

Qualifications: Show off your creativity and cooking skills (or just practice!). We supply the kitchen and equipment, your group just needs to bring the ingredients. All food must be prepared and cooked on site or brought directly from a commercial retail kitchen. Maximum of 15 volunteers, including chaperones.
