Cooking up a feed at Ronald McDonald House
Through their Home for Dinner Program, the staff at Ronald McDonald House invites groups to come and prepare a meal for families staying at their “home-away-from-home” while their sick child receives medical attention in St. John’s. On Dec. 13, staff from The Telegram accepted the invitation and prepared a delicious meal of stuffed chicken breasts, veggies, and dessert for the 35 guests at the home. Knowing that we were helping to ease the stress of families in such a difficult time, our experience was both humbling and rewarding. The dedicated staff and volunteers at RMH were a delight to work with, and we look forward to our next adventure in the kitchen!
