Alberta Beef Producers, in partnership with the Canadian Beef Centre of Excellence (CBCE), was proud to host “Home for Dinner” events at Ronald McDonald House Canada (RMHC) locations in Calgary and Edmonton.
The two events in March provided home-cooked meals for families staying at the Ronald McDonald House while requiring medical or hospital care or treatment.
This is the second year that ABP and CBCE have partnered to host these events. Delegates and their families joined ABP staff and CBCE chefs to serve 70 people at the Calgary event and almost 100 people at the Edmonton location. We served Alberta beef steak sampler as an appetizer, followed by roast beef with spring vegetables, Caesar salad, and a candy “bar” for dessert.
“Connecting over a family meal has always been a part of the values and culture of those who live and work in this industry,” said Lindsay Roberts, ABP’s Marketing and Communications Manager.
“We recognize that those who are utilizing the services that RMHC provides are families that have to travel from (typically rural) areas to receive specialized care. We love that with these events we can take the stress of preparing a meal for these families off of the families themselves.”
Ronald McDonald House Charities® Alberta supports families seeking vital medical treatment for their seriously ill or injured child. There are currently four Ronald McDonald Houses in Alberta located in Calgary, Edmonton, Red Deer, and Medicine Hat, providing a warm, compassionate home for those who need to travel for medical reasons.
