Make a Meal

Thank you for your interest in preparing a meal for our RMHC families.  We provide lodging and support to more than 1,100 families each year, and meals are an important part of that.  There is a different atmosphere in the House when meals are provided.  More people gather and become support for one another.  It's nice for people to come "home" after a long day at the hospital, smell comforting aroma of a home-cooked meal and feel taken care of.  If you have any questions about our Make a Meal program please call 585-442-5437 ext 0.
