News & Announcements
Registration for our 9th annual family-friendly fundraiser, Kick Up Your Heels for Max's Meals to be held on Satuday, March 7th, 2020 is now open! Visit our Fundraisers page for more information!
Max's Meals was selected by the Hyde Park Busken (at the corner of Madison & Edwards Roads) to be a recipient of their Pies for a Purpose program for the past 5 years! As a result, we have distributed over 500 pumpkin pies to the families of the Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children's for Thanksgiving!
Max's Meals was thrilled to take part again the 11th annual Cancer Survivor's Day, sponsored by the Cincinnati Children's - Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute on Saturday, September 9th, 2017 at the Cincinnati Zoo. We shared 200 bags of cotton candy with lots of giggling, happy survivors and their families! It was a great day!
In honor of Max's 14th birthday on December 26th, 2015, Max's Meals was thrilled to contribute a check for $14,000 toward Dr. Stella Davies bone marrow failure research at Cincinnati Children's Hospital!
Max's Meals launched a new offering for the patients and caregivers of the Cancer & Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children's Hospital early in 2016 and has provided over 75 Helping Hands Bags to the caregivers of bone marrow transplant patients in CBDI. These bags are filled with items that "experienced caregivers" found helpful when first leaving the hospital after a long stay with their sick children. Our hope is that these bags help caregivers know that someone is thinking of them during this difficult time.
