We often take for granted the comfort in a home cooked meal. Growing up,  you probably never understood why it was so important to Mom and Dad to have family meals together every night.  You forget the camaraderie and enjoyment that comes from the laughter, conversation and home cooking shared around a dinner table. Moments and memories like these become especially important during times of crisis and turmoil. For this reason, the Rotary Club of Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus (BNMC) has adopted the Kevin Guest House as one of its original and on-going service projects. The Kevin Guest House is the nation’s first healthcare hospitality house inviting any patient or family member, local or out-of-town, a warm and peaceful place to stay while a loved one undergoes medical treatment. Since the inception of the BNMC Rotary Club, its members have volunteered each month to cook and serve dinner to any patient staying at KGH.  The club values the importance of caring for others, and has been fortunate to learn how friendship and food can lighten the burden someone else carries.
