A Special Message Regarding Our Meal Programs 

Please email Kara directly at to reserve a date for your meal donation.

In response to the ongoing developments related to COVID-19, we have had to temporarily suspend in-house volunteers for 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 by donating a take-out meal to be delivered or dropping off to Ronald McDonald House Pittsburgh.

  • To sponsor/donate a take-out meal at Ronald McDonald House Pittsburgh, please contact Kara Kimble directly at Please do not use the meal train to sign up for a date at this time. Kara 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.

Provide A Meal

Come to Ronald McDonald House Morgantown to cook a meal for our families and help ease their burden of having to be in the kitchen instead of their child’s bedside.

Volunteers can provide breakfast, lunch, or dinner; are free to make menu decisions, and have the full use of our commercial kitchen.

Meal prep can provide a variety of ideal experiences for volunteer groups of all ages. Whether you are seeking a team building experience for employees, a learning experience for an eager scout troop or are just looking for an opportunity to give back in your community; Meals from the Heart can suit your needs. (Maximum of 10 volunteers per meal).
