@HourThyme:  Please let us know how it goes!  What a beautiful thing to do for Valentine’s day.  And how awesome of the bar to help.  I guess Valentine’s day is about love after all (not just chocolate and pink stuffed gorillas at the grocery store).

I used to volunteer by cooking for Ronald McDonald house when I lived in town. Chili and lasagna were always big hits because not everyone sits down to eat at a normal time. They were easy to keep warm/warm up whenever parents got home. Good luck! Just a heads up, but even with feeding 60, you may only see one or two families while you are there. Parents spend as much time as possible at the hospital and come back to the house pretty late

@HourThyme:  If its cold soups and chilis would be amazing!! I applaud you for this!! Our family was helped beyond belief by the Ronald McDonald house several times when my late little sister was in there, and you would not believe the relief and comfort it gave us the few times we had people do this (It was Thanksgiving)!! Anything home made and made with love will mean the world to these families!! Such a Beautiful thing you are doing! We donate to them every time we get a chance! God bless you hun!! You are a beautiful person for doing this, as someone who has been there living off hospital and fast food sandwiches, so you can be there for a kiddo, (I stayed there with my mom twice), its AMAZING what home cooked food can do!

also in addition to soups and chili’s, you could do like cinnamon rolls or whatever, your ideas sound fabulous!
