Food for the Soul

A warm meal welcomes our families home at our House through our Family Meals from the Heart program. Volunteers who provide meals for our families play an integral part in making our House a home-away-from-home during their children’s treatment and recovery process. Each year, more than 200 meals are prepared to serve more than 1,000 hot meals for guests.

If you’re interested in preparing a meal for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan, locate an open date from the calendar below and then call 517-485-9303 or email and together we confirm the date that works for you.  


As you prepare to lend your time and talent, please review our guidelines to ensure the best possible experience for families and volunteers alike.

Jackson national life volunteers in kitchen
“Jackson associates love spending time together cooking for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. For many of our associates, volunteering to cook a meal is their first visit to the Ronald McDonald House and they are always impressed by the good work being done there. However, some of our associates have benefitted from the Ronald McDonald House and truly know the support and peace of mind that comes from the house. We are extremely grateful to partner with an organization that supports families through a difficult time.” – Danielle Robinson, Jackson National Life Insurance
