Meals from the Heart
The Ronald McDonald House of Southwest Virginia provides temporary housing for families whose children are receiving treatment for serious illness or injury at a health facility in the Roanoke community.
Families spend long days at the hospital and often have little energy or resources to prepare a meal. The gift of a hot, balanced meal is always enjoyed and gives the families a feeling of normalcy when they are away from home.
The meal, which our members prepared, included crispy onion chicken, roasted potatoes, vegetable medley, and apple crisp ala mode. Our members greatly enjoyed the fellowship of working together to provide this hearting meal.
