About this opportunity

What makes our Houses unique is that families are able to benefit from the compassionate support of our volunteers and staff, and the companionship of other families who are navigating a similar journey.
We have two roles that we require your help with:

Dinner Coordinator The role of the Dinner Coordinator is to assist and oversee corporate and community groups with ‘Meals from the Heart’ dinners. The ‘Meals from the Heart’ program provides dinner for families staying at Ronald McDonald House. Dinner Coordinators support the groups to ensure food is well prepared, served to families in a timely manner and the kitchen left tidy and clean for the following day.
