Lovin From The Oven

The joy of cooking together for WA’s sick children and their families.

Lovin’ from the Oven gives you the opportunity to ‘bake a difference’ in the lives of families with an ill or injured child. The donation of your time and baking talents can provide comfort to the whole family, after all, we all love to share a treat with the loves we love.

The families we support at Ronald McDonald House WA often spend hours, days or weeks by their child’s bedside to ensure they get the medical treatment they need.  By preparing home baked treats through the Lovin’ From The Oven program, you’re helping provide a source of comfort for the families who stay with us. Every treat provided helps make the exhausting day of a parent, or challenging day of an ill child, that little bit brighter.

When you participate in Lovin’ From The Oven know that once the treat is gone, the memory of your contribution and the laughter and excitement shown by the child remains.
