Guest Chefs

Ronald McDonald House Charities of New Mexico is committed to providing clean and healthy family-centered spaces for families to rest, recharge and connect while their child receives medical care. The health and wellbeing of our guest families, staff, and the communities in which we serve are, and always will be, our priority.

We have a number of ways that you can help provide a delicious meal for the families staying with us. Whether you volunteer as a Guest Chef to cook one night, purchase a catered meal, or donate for us to purchase food, you are easing the burden our families face. Thank you!

Guest Chef Volunteers:

  • Up to eight people are allowed per House, per visit.
  • All Guest Chef volunteers must be vaccinated for COVID-19.
  • Everyone must wear a mask in common areas, including the kitchen.
  • Returning groups must have one representative complete the food safety assessment prior to volunteering again. New groups need to complete a provided food safety course prior to their first night cooking as Guest Chefs.

We continue to closely monitor COVID-19 to ensure the steps we take are in the best interest of the families we serve. We appreciate your help in protecting the health and safety of the people who deliver the mission and communities in which we live.
