Cup of Care Program

Our Cup of Care program is an extension of the care we provide our patients and their families while they’re at Onslow Memorial. We think it is important that our patients leave our hospital with additional comfort for the next day or night. That’s why we have made it our goal to provide all discharged patients with ready to eat, homemade soup, for their return home.

The program originated in 2011, and over the past year we’ve proudly sent close to 5,600 bowls of homemade soup home with discharged patients.

A special thanks goes out to Lineatte Cruz and Richard Farparan. These two dedicated retail cooks go above and beyond their duties—not only making Cup of Care possible but also contributing to our patients’ healing and overall wellbeing. We are so lucky to have them, and every member of the Food and Nutrition Services department, as part of our healthcare team.
