Meals from the Heart Program


Thank you for your interest in volunteering for the “Meals from the Heart” Program at our Ronald McDonald House in New Hyde Park. Due to the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, we made the difficult decision to temporarily close our House on April 1, 2020. We continue to assist our families with children in nearby hospitals by providing them with:

  • Comfort/snack bags
  • Grab and go breakfast/snack bags
  • Groceries for home
  • Loaner iPads to stay virtually connected with their families
  • Gas and Uber/Lyft gift cards for travel to and from the hospital, to name a few.

In addition, a portion of the House has been repurposed to provide respite for healthcare workers who are on the front lines battling this virus.  We are glad to help these amazing people in this small way.

We very much appreciate your interest in cooking brunch or dinner for our families. As an alternative at this time, we ask you to consider making a donation to RMHC New York Metro to continue services for our families during this unsettling time. We appreciate any donation you can make. Click here to DONATE NOW.

If you have cooked at the House in the past, you will receive an email when a date is set for reopening the House, asking you to sign up online for the Meals from the Heart program.  If you are a newcomer to our program and would like to be notified as we plan our reopening, please send an email to [email protected] so we may advise you as well!

Thank you,
RMHC New York Metro
