Meals from the Heart 

Come into a Ronald McDonald House
to make a meal for our families.

Our Meals from the Heart Program is a great initiative which provides families with delicious nutritious meals and a night off from preparing dinner. Supporting families of seriously ill children at Ronald McDonald House is an amazing and unforgettable team-building experience that demonstrates your organisation’s commitment to corporate social responsibility, encourages staff engagement and boosts team morale.

Alex from UCC Coffee Australia Limited said: 
We were so fortunate to help families in need whilst also bonding as a team. The sense of pride we had was overwhelming and taking the time out of our busy schedules was not only rewarding but brought us closer together as a team.

What's Involved? 

  • What: Your team will work together to plan a menu and purchase the fresh ingredients. Groceries can be brought on the day or delivered directly to the House. You will then visit the House for a tour, prepare the meal and sit down and enjoy dinner with the families staying with us.

  • When: Tuesday and Thursday evenings with a maximum of 6 - 10 participants (Monash House is strictly limited to 6 participants)

  • Time: 3:45- 8:00pm 

  • Cost: $1,000 for Victorian Houses (Parkville, North Fitzroy and Monash) plus the cost of your groceries

We are a not-for-profit organisation that relies solely on donations and community support. As financial support is vital for us to continue to provide this support, a donation is required to secure your spot in our Corporate Group Volunteering Program.

Your generous donation helps cover the cost of running this program; including equipment upkeep, volunteer training, staffing, and of course keeping our doors open to more families than ever before.

Health & Wellbeing

Our main priority is to always keep our families and yourselves safe and healthy. This means we must ensure we follow some guidelines as we welcome guests to our houses.

  • We are mask friendly-although face masks are not mandatory in our Ronald McDonald House Charities Facilities, you and your team are more than welcome to wear one for the protection of yourself and families. 
  • Please do not visit the House if unwell. Anyone experiencing symptoms on the day will be turned away for the health and safety of families staying with us.
