Providing Meals That Heal

January 28th, 2021 | News

As RMHC-Madison continues to navigate the effects of COVID-19, we understand the best way to reduce risks to our families, staff, and volunteers is to limit or suspend many of our beloved programs including the Dinner Program, Augie’s Lunches with Love, and the Baking and Casserole program.

We not only feel the loss of these incredible volunteers, but the expense of feeding our families is creating a financial challenge again this year.

You can ensure our guest families still have the comfort provided by a hot meal each night along with portable pantry items for their time at the hospital by making a gift today.

How to support the meal program

It costs approximately $25 per day to provide basic meals for one person. We do not know when our volunteer meal program can safely be fully reinstated.  We are actively working with local restaurants to purchase prepared meals for our families, understanding this community partnership serves several important needs.  Restaurants like Longtable Beer Café, Brasserie V, Novanta, Frostwood Kitchens, Naples 15, McDonald’s, Glass Nickle Pizza, and Panera are just some of the restaurants we partnered with last year.
