Meals from the Heart

Meals from the Heart

When a child is receiving medical treatment for serious illness or injury, taking away the worry of “what’s for dinner?” is a wonderful relief. Cooking a home-cooked meal is one of the most important ways we can provide our guest families with the comfort of home, especially after a long day at the hospital. You don’t need to be an expert chef! You just have to want to give families a little peace of mind.

Thanks to our Meals from the Heart Program, meals are prepared nightly by individuals and community groups. We have a large commercial kitchen to prepare meals on site served buffet style between 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

"For the first three days Ashley said she cried when she came back from the hospital exhausted, and found a meal on the table. “Just to come home, (home, laugh), come here and have that was just such a burden off your shoulders."
