On-The-Go Meal Kits

Many families at the Alfred I. duPont Hospital fo Children are there for a long time, and cafeteria/vending machine food can get old and expensive fast. The Ronald McDonald House of Delaware has a program to provide meals to families in need, and we need your help. Meal Kits help alleviate the financial burden of meal time at the hospital, and get families back to their child's side faster. Meal Kits are used across three area Family Rooms, which bring a piece of home to 

Each Meal Kit needs to include an individually-portioned entree, side, set of plastic utensils, and beverage. Everything needs to be non-perishable, non-refrigerated, and cannot require a can opener. Families do not have access to extra kitchen items at the hospital, so if an item requires something additional (like a bowl), it must be donated with the Meal Kit. Microwavable items are accepted. Earliest expiration date must be noted on each bag. Groups are also encouraged to decorate the provided bags or include personal notes with each kit. Assembly can be done either on site or off site. *On-site assembly times are limited, please discuss with Nicole (information below) to schedule on-site assembly.

Some Examples of Items include:

Examples of entrees: - Chef Boyardee - Easy Mac - Star-Kist To-Go packs and crackers - Campbell's Soups To-Go - Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers

Examples of sides: - Individual pudding snacks - Apple sauce - Nuts - Crackers - Granola bars - Trail mix - Oatmeal - Dried fruit
