The Rotary Club of Hamburg provided meals for families staying at the Buffalo Ronald McDonald House on Oct. 26. The club supported the endeavor by purchasing the groceries and ingredients for the meals prepared at the Ronald McDonald House at 780 West Ferry St.  
Rotarians Colleen Gibbons and Eileen Hotho along with Krista Van Wagner, culinary instructor at Global Concepts Charter School and her student Selena Peña prepared the meal. Van Wagner is a well-known local chef and former longtime owner of Curly’s Restaurant. The Rotarian group prepared chicken Françoise, boulangère potatoes, crisp buttery carrots and apple cake for dessert.

The Ronald McDonald House is celebrating its 40th anniversary and is staffed with full-time and part-time employees. Volunteers provide the dinners through the Meal Makers/Comfort Club at the house.
