Meet Ortencia

Updated: Apr 3

Ortencia, 87, has been receiving meals from Nourish since 2018. She lives alone, doesn't drive, and receives daily hot meals. 

As a jaw cancer survivor, she requests that we puree her food unless it’s fish, and since she dislikes asparagus, we make sure she receives an alternative vegetable. 

Her gratitude for the customized service is evident:

"I don’t know what I would be doing right now if it wasn’t for Nourish. It’s not just a meal to feed my body it feeds my soul. Being remembered, makes my life better!” 

She eagerly awaits delivery days, praising the quality and variety of the food:

“I don’t know what I am going to get but I know it will be great. The food is really good, and very nutritious. I tell you the Chef is primo.” 

Nourish Meals on Wheels takes pride in accommodating special needs like pureed or chopped food, dietary restrictions, and preferences, ensuring clients like Ortencia can age with dignity while enjoying delicious meals they love.
