Cooking For Ronald McDonald House
Yesterday, we were honoured to cook breakfast, lunch and dinner for Ronald McDonald House. The Ronald McDonald House is situated on the grounds of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin, Dublin. The House provides accommodation for 20 families every night who have seriously ill children in hospital. For children facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having their mum and dad close by for love and support. The Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalised child at very little cost. So, as part of the Cook for Families Programme, we were honoured to cook for families yesterday.
Each year we provide chef-cooked meals to help relieve families of the added worry of having to cook for themselves. In an added touch we are proud to leave a few days worth of meals too!
Therefore supporting the ethos that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child. Particularly, not where they can afford to stay, or where they will get their next meal. As such, our suppliers, Keelings Select, BWG Foodservice and Odaios Foods were quick to support in donating all manner of ingredients and food stuffs. In this regard, we are proud to partner with Irish suppliers who are passionate advocates of Irish charities and communities. In doing so they often support us in our community and charity initiatives, for which we are extremely thankful.
Of course, huge thanks must go to our superb team led by Dave Gorman and Martin Byrne for cooking on site in Ronald McDonald House throughout the day. We are delighted to be part of a wide community who support The Ronald McDonald House to help families to face the weight of illness together.
