Join the DPA in making dinner for the residents of Charlottesville’s Ronald McDonald House, which provides a home away from home for families with children suffering from long-term illnesses and serious injuries. Volunteers can either contribute by donating ingredients for the meal, joining other DPA members in cooking in the evening at the Ronald McDonald House kitchen, or both! Children and student partners are welcome.
This month, we are making Swedish Meatballs and Mashed Potatoes! To sign up to contribute, fill out the Google Doc:
IMPORTANT LOGISTICAL AND FOOD SAFETY INFORMATION:
If you are planning to help prepare the meal at the RMH kitchen from 5:30-7 p.m., just bring your donated ingredients with you. You may park in any available space in the RMH parking lot. If you can't come to help cook but still want to donate ingredients, you may drop them off at the RMH kitchen any time before 5:30 p.m. on the day of the dinner. Please be aware that the RMH facility is always locked. You will have to use the call pad to buzz the front desk.
All food must be prepared in the RMH kitchen or a commercial kitchen (restaurant, grocery store, etc.). You can purchase prepared foods to donate but you cannot prepare food at home to bring to RMH.
