************************************************************************* ****PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING A MEAL **** ****A Special Message Regarding Our Meal Programs **** Please email Morgan directly at morgan@rmhcpgh-mgtn.org to reserve a date for your meal donation. In response to the ongoing developments related to COVID-19, we have had to temporarily suspend our volunteer programs, including our meal program. But the need for meals still exists! Please consider the many ways you can help us continue to serve our families through this difficult time. Support your local restaurants, grocery stores and caterers by donating a take-out meal to Ronald McDonald House Pittsburgh. · To sponsor, donate or drop off a take-out meal at Ronald McDonald House Pittsburgh, please contact Volunteer and Outreach Coordinator, Morgan Knox, at morgan@rmhcpgh-mgtn.org. Please do not use the meal train to sign up for a date at this time. Morgan will assist in blocking off a date. · As a reminder, no food can be prepared or cooked at home. All donated items must be from a restaurant or grocery store. Donate gift cards to restaurants or grocery stores so that our families can purchase food and take-out items. Gift card donations can be mailed directly to our Charity at: RMHC Pittsburgh and Morgantown The Plaza Building 451 44th Street Pittsburgh, PA 15201 Thank you for your support. ************************************************************************** Come to Ronald McDonald House Pittsburgh to cook a meal for our families any day of the week and ease their burden of having to be in the kitchen instead of their child’s bedside. Volunteers can choose to provide breakfast, lunch, or dinner; are free to make menu decisions, and have the full use of our commercial kitchen. The actual number of people attending the meal varies greatly even though the House is usually full. This is due to a number of factors, none of which are predictable. Not all families will be able to make it to the House in time for your serving, but they will be searching for leftovers when they return. At times, families will prepare to-go plates for children in isolation. Rest assured that whether the food is eaten in the kitchen at the time of the meal, carried away, or warmed up for leftovers later on, it will be eaten and is very much appreciated. ****PLEASE READ BEFORE BOOKING A MEAL **** 1. Please be sure to follow RMH's meal program guidelines found here : https://rmhcpgh-mgtn.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/03/Meals-from-the-Heart_Food-Prep-Guidelines_RMH-Pgh-2018.pdf . Meal train has their own set of guidelines - please do NOT follow those. 2. RMHC's Meal train is not designed to "hold" meals for groups. If/when you click on the "volunteer for this" button, please note that you are signing up for this meal/date. Please be prepared to provide this meal. 3. Once your group has signed up via meal train, please reach out to the Volunteer Coordinator at morgan@rmhcpgh-mgtn.org for further instruction in the reservation process. *PLEASE NOTE: you/your group have not fully reserved the date(s) without filling out the additional required paperwork given by the Volunteer Coordinator.* 4. Meal Train can send you/your group reminders of when you are scheduled to volunteer at RMHC. Please check your "spam" or "junk" folders to see if they have been filtered there. 5. Are you interested in signing up to prepare a meal in the next 5 days? Please call the volunteer coordinator at 412-246-1103. Please do not use meal train to book meals in the very near future (within 5 days). Calling the volunteer coordinator with these inquiries can make sure the RMHC families are notified in a timely manner that the meal will be provided. 6. If your group has a menu planned out for your meal, please list it on your Meal Train booking so others know not to make the same thing as your group on that day or the following/previous day. You can log in and add this information at a later date if you are not aware of menu at time of booking. **A warm meal is a great way to lift our families’ spirits. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your time & meal donation.** for more info please visit our prepare a meal website here: https://rmhcpgh-mgtn.org/get-involved/meal-programs/pittsburgh-house-meal-programs/meals-from-the-heart/ ***Note: Sorting by "Calendar View" instead of "List View" may be easier to view meal openings. ***Please do not use this calendar for Learn and Serve with Donna, Breakfast Bags or Freezer Friends Sign Ups.
