Home for Dinner Program

We are happy to be able to welcome in-person Home for Dinner groups once again.

The health and well-being of children, families, volunteers, staff and the communities in which we operate are our highest priority.

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
  • Members must be in good heath 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 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.

Catered Meals

An alternate way to support this valuable service 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. 

Fund a Meal for our Family Room

Something as simple as having a nourishing meal at the hospital is very meaningful to families with sick children. And because families want to stay close to their children, they often do not leave the hospital to get food. You can provide a little comfort to our families by funding a meal to our Ronald McDonald Family Room.

There are opportunities to provide a meal for families visiting our Family Room located within HSC Children's Hospital, just a short walk from PICU and NICU. The Family Room can be found at Yellow Deer Zone, Level 3 (CE-3 - 840 Sherbrook Street). 

If you would like to sign up to Fund a Meal at our Family Room, please contact our Family Room Manager, Krista Lewis, by email at krista@rmhmanitoba.org.
