With our new Meals That Heal Curbside program, you can provide a warm evening meal for all the families at our House without ever leaving your own, all while supporting local businesses during this challenging time. You may contact any of the establishments below or the restaurant/catering service of your choice, place an order, and have it delivered to the House on the date you have coordinated with Laurie Cope (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Another option would be to plan a menu, shop for the groceries, and deliver them to the House for a staff member to prepare. However you choose to participate in the Meals That Heals Curbside program, please know that we are thoroughly grateful for your support. Your kindness and generosity in providing the evening meal make you a contributor in what is often the best part of our families’ day.
Food items such as frozen casseroles, boxed meals, and the like, would be greatly appreciated. Please contact Laurie Cope at email@example.com if you are willing to support our families in this way.
At RMHC, Meals That Heal is the cornerstone of our House program, relying completely on people within the community to keep it up and running. As a Meals That Heal volunteer, you provide so much more than just food: you provide families with time to decompress with others after a tough day at the hospital, with the comfort and warmth of a home-cooked meal and conversation shared with families and members of the Omaha community. You provide them with extra support during some of their most challenging times.
Everyone can volunteer! Families, groups of friends, university and high school student groups, businesses, churches, and civic organizations alike volunteer to cook for our families. We only ask that during flu season (November 1 – April 1) all volunteers be over the age of 18.
Meals That Heal volunteers work as a group (up to 10 people) to plan menus, purchase ingredients and prepare meals in our House’s fully-equipped kitchen. ALL food must be prepared in our kitchen or brought directly from a commercial kitchen, with the exception of prepared food from a grocery store. We are not able to serve par-baked or pre-prepared food. For other FAQs please read through our Meals That Heal Information Sheet, where you’ll find all other guidelines.
Creativity is welcome when planning your menu! If you’re unsure of what to cook, you can always check to see if your date is a National Food Holiday and plan around that! Looking for meal ideas? Check out this awesome Pinterest board created by RMHC Mid-Missouri.
Our goal is to have 365 meals provided to the families that call RMHC in Omaha a home away from home, with options to provide dinner or weekend brunch. If you would like to sign up, simply pick an open date (or multiple) on the calendar below and contact Laurie Cope to secure your date.
If you have further questions or would like to sign up, please contact Laurie Cope at firstname.lastname@example.org at 402-346-9377 ext 122.
OSI is a global meat processing company that provides products to McDonald’s around the world. Supporting the RMHC is a natural extension of our partnership with McDonald’s. Our local OSI team enjoys the fellowship with the families, and with each other. I am always inspired by the families and how they stay strong with everything they are going through. If we can provide a little bit of normalcy, then our time was well spent!
We do what we do for the House because we can, we care, we are in hospitality and we stand behind “Pure Hospitality”! What is “Pure Hospitality”? It’s family, community, genuine, unscripted, honesty. Along with our staff, we believe RMHC fits into all of
