Home for Dinner Program

After a long day at the hospital, there is nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. Get together with friends, family or co-workers to plan a menu and prepare a comforting dinner for our families. We provide the kitchen, you provide the food. Whether a one time event or a monthly, we invite you to come to our House and share your culinary skills with our families.

We are always looking for groups to prepare a home-cooked meal for our families at the House. The Home for Dinner Program is a great team building experience and an excellent way to offer our families the opportunity to spend more time together. Check out our Home for Dinner Program calendars for the months of February, March, April, May and June to plan your next Home for Dinner accordingly.

If you would like to sign up for our Home for Dinner Program please fill out our Home for Dinner Group Contact Form and send it to our House Manager, Pat Battellino, by email at pat@rmhmanitoba.org or by fax at 204-774-2160.

Prepare Dinner at our House

Review our Home for Dinner Guidelines
Our Home for Dinner Guidelines clearly outlines what you can expect in our Home for Dinner Program.

Planning Your Meal

Please ensure to follow proper Food Handling & Safety procedures. All meals must be prepared or assembled onsite at our House or delivered from a restaurant or catering service. Our kitchen accommodates up to 6 people, including children, and has all of the cookware and utensils needed to prepare your meal. You decide the menu, but we encourage you to contact our House Manager to find out what has recently been served to avoid duplication. Well-rounded menus (salad, main dish, side and fruit) are recommended – we ask that you to please limit the amount of sweets.

Serving our Families
Prepare enough to feed at least 20 people. Dinner should be ready by 5 pm. Please have 2 - 3 volunteers available to clean up and put away leftovers by 6 pm.

Serving Your Meal
Meals are served buffet style. Although many families may not be present at the time the food is prepared, all meals are thoroughly enjoyed when our families return from the hospital.

Cleaning Up
Cleaning up after your meal is sincerely appreciated. This includes cleaning and returning all kitchen utensils, wiping down counters and loading the dishwasher.
