Share-A-Meal

After a long day at the hospital, families appreciate a hot meal.

Giving this gift allows families to have one less thing to think about so they can focus all their energy on helping their child get better. You can help make a meal for our families!

We invite volunteers to become involved in our Share-A-Meal program by preparing a meal in our volunteer kitchen or baked goods weekday mornings for our families. You can also help by purchasing prepared meals from a restaurant or packaged/sealed food from a grocery store.

Fresh fruits and vegetables are always welcome! Come see us in our new location at 4757 Agassiz Crossing! Groups welcome!

Guidelines for Preparing a Meal

  • Plan to cook for 10-12 adults. Meals will be prepared in our volunteer kitchen.
  • Meals and baked goods must be prepared on-site in our volunteer kitchen.
  • We have pots, pans, cooking utensils, mixers, and other items to help you prepare your meal. However, if your meal requires something specialized, you may want to bring your own items.
  • Volunteers are responsible for planning and providing the grocery items needed to prepare the meal. Make your favorite!
  • Volunteers should clean-up the kitchen when they are finished cooking. Cooking usually takes 1.5 to 2 hours.
  • Hot items prepared prior to mealtime may be placed in a crock pot/warmer to keep them warm.
