Ronald McDonald House

A good meal shared with love can offer the smallest relief to families dealing with the toughest challenges.

Give: For the last few years, I’ve volunteered to cook at Ronald McDonald House.  The house provides accomodation, meals and support to families with a child staying at Wellington Hospital. Their goal is to keep families close and what an important a goal it is.

Our team of four will plan and cook a meal for around 40 people then stay to have a chat to those that want to.

There’s a few reasons I support this charity. The first is that I don’t have children myself but I know the enormous strain being away from your home while you look after a sick loved one.  I also know how important good quality, nutritious food is during stressful, sleepless times. And I love cooking for big groups! It makes my heart fill with happiness to see people enjoying the food I prepared. It’s a really easy way to offer some relief to these families who have likely been to hell and back.

The team in Wellington are incredibly organised and usually look to fill a year with volunteers around January. Get in touch with them to see how you could help, even if it’s sending in baked goods from time to time.
