Home for Dinner Program

The health and well-being of children, families, volunteers, staff and the communities in which we operate are our highest priority.  Due to the recent increase of COVID cases in our community, we are pausing our Home for Dinner program. Funding a catered meal, delivery of groceries for our staff to prepare a meal or a monetary donation are welcome to support RMHC Manitoba families. 

Please note that strict adherence to our COVID-19 protocols is important to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all. Home for Dinner groups must adhere to the following requirements:

  • Proof of Covid-19 vaccination required and verified upon entry
  • Group size limited to 2 volunteers 
  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older; (participants 13 years of age or older are permitted as a group member if accompanied and supervised by parent or caregiver; groups still cannot exceed 2 volunteers)
  • Members must be in good health to attend and will undergo wellness check questions and sign a health declaration prior to participation 
  • Mask wearing, physical distancing and hand hygiene maintained at all times

After a long day at the hospital, there is nothing more appreciated than a home-cooked meal. The Home for Dinner Program is an excellent way to offer our families the opportunity to spend more time together. 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.

Our Home for Dinner Guidelines clearly outline what you can expect in our Home for Dinner Program. Please review, along with our Food & Safety Handling Guidelines and share with your group.

We usually book Home for Dinner dates on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Please see our Home for Dinner Program 2021 calendar or 2022 calendar to view available dates. If you would like to sign up to prepare a meal, please download, fill out our Home for Dinner Group Contact Form and email back to info@rmhmanitoba.org. For questions or more information, please call 204-774-4777, ext. 2. 

Please do not park in the family back parking lot. There is metered parking available on Bannatyne Avenue and Kate Street.

Fund a Meal for our Families

An alternate way to support families is through a catered meal, delivery of groceries for our staff to prepare a meal or a monetary donation that will be directed to the meal program at either the Ronald McDonald House or the Ronald McDonald Family Room located within HSC Children's Hospital, Yellow Deer Zone, Level 3 (CE-3 - 840 Sherbrook Street).

If you would like to Fund a Meal, please email info@rmhmanitoba.org. For questions or more information, please call 204-774-4777, ext. 2.
