Our families at Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital are thankful for people who care. Cookie Breaks are a wonderful way to support our mission with minimal fuss. The treats you bake will be a comforting snack for families staying near their child in the hospital. Pick up a few tubs of commercially prepared dough – enough to about 8 dozen cookies. Be as creative as you want – sprinkles make everyone smile! You bring the dough and bakers, we have cookie sheets and an oven.
Before proceeding, for the comfort and safety of our families and guests, please review our full guidelines before completing the form. The maximum number that may participate cannot exceed five people. Group volunteers must be 16 years of age or older. Anyone who has a communicable illness, has had cold or flu symptoms in the last five days, or has been exposed to an infectious disease within the past 48 hours may not volunteer.
Food Preparation Guidelines:
Ronald McDonald House -Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital only accepts catered/commercially prepared meals. You may not bring any home-cooked foods to serve. Food cannot be cooked in the Ronald McDonald House kitchen inside Children’s Memorial Hermann Hospital. When menu planning, please provide a vegetarian/non-meat option and when serving a pork entrée, provide an alternate protein. Plan for about 60 people to eat and be prepared to have food divided into two set-ups as our families are served on different floors.
