Charleston restaurants provide food for Ronald McDonald House families during renovations
CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — More than two dozen restaurants have volunteered to provide food for families at the Ronald McDonald House of Charleston for a month while the kitchen is closed for renovations.
The Ronald McDonald House, which provides a temporary home for families of children who are seriously ill, is adding five bedrooms and bathrooms and renovating the kitchen at the existing 27-room building, according to spokeswoman Rachel Hubbard.
When Anthony DiBernardo, the owner of Swig & Swine, heard the renovations would shut down the facility’s kitchen and that they would need enough food from a DHEC-approved kitchen to feed 50 people each night for a month, he volunteered to help.
DiBernardo, who is also the president of the Greater Charleston Restaurant Association, sent an email out to all of the association’s members.
