Meals of Love Volunteers

Recruit a group of friends, co-workers, or even your own family to join you in preparing a breakfast, lunch or dinner for the families staying at the Pasadena Ronald McDonald House,

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 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. Dinner is served daily at 6:00 pm. Other meals including breakfast, brunch, and lunch may also be scheduled.


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.

Location: Pasadena Ronald McDonald House
