Programs

Ronald McDonald House at Stanford offers a warm, home-away-from-home environment. All programs are designed to provide a sense of normalcy for families whose lives have been turned upside down by serious illness.

Café Con Leche
This program provides a casual space that is needed for Spanish-speaking families. The group meets bi-weekly every Monday to enjoy chocolaté (hot chocolate), café (coffee), pan dulce (sweet bread) and each other's company.

Camp Ronald McDonald
This annual summer program offers traditional camp activities like arts and crafts, sports, music, and team building in an environment where siblings can make special summer memories together, while ensuring our little ones continue to receive vital medical care at the hospital.

Day Pass Program
The Day Pass Program aims to provide services to even more families of seriously-ill children by offering services during designated hours to families not currently staying at the House.

Happy Wheels Cart
The "Happy Wheels" cart provides a bit of comfort as it travels the hallways of Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, bringing parents a hot beverage and snack while keeping the little ones entertained with books, fun activities and toys.

megaBITES
presents an impactful volunteer experience that leverages community and corporate support to provide hot, nutritious meals for 123 families staying at Ronald McDonald House at Stanford every day.

Healthy ingredients are procured in advance and staff guides groups through the preparation of well-balanced, diverse menus. The beautiful, fully-loaded commercial kitchen is a great place to team build in a casual, engaging environment.

The Wishing Tree
Participation in The Wishing Tree program is a wonderful way to support the little ones at Ronald McDonald House at Stanford and a meaningful holiday activity for families schools, businesses, Scout troops, and office parties.
