When you walk into the kitchen of the Ronald McDonald House and a group of volunteers are preparing a home-cooked meal for the families, you can just smell the love in the air. It is the aromas of a home-cooked meal or freshly baked cookies, and so much more. It is comfort food that rejuvenates the mind and spirits of families coming home after a long, stressful day at the hospital caring for their loved ones.
“The best part of being a Guest Chef is making the lives of guests a little easier, while they are going through difficult times.”
-Casco Bay Sunrise Rotary Club.
We recommend planning to cook for 10-15 people, however, you can call the House the day before your scheduled meal for a more accurate headcount.
