What is nourished?

The frontlines of COVID-19 don't have to be desolate places. We enable our hospital staff to order delicious affordable food directly from local restaurants.

Times are tough. But we're tougher.

Let's face it. COVID-19 has dramatically altered our way of life. Our healthcare workers have been asked to take on a monumental task of keeping us safe while staring down so many uncertainties.

We need to take care of them.

In response to COVID-19, Nourished has been developed to provide a quick and easy way for frontline hospital staff to safely order delicious, affordable food from local restaurants.

E​very delivery comes directly from the kitchen to a hospital-based access point designed to maximize physical distancing and reduce the potential for virus spread.​ No courier services are used and we have established preparation and delivery protocols with trusted partner restaurants.

We work with one restaurant per meal to guarantee business and provide predictability through predictive modeling based on user ordering behavior, which restaurants need during this time of unpredictability.

We understand your budget

COVID-19 has decimated our economy and there are a lot of us that are struggling without any sight of relief. We at Nourished have recognized that and have built these concepts into the core of our platform.

By aggregating orders from ordering users and delivering the meals in bulk to predetermined locations, we are able to provide meals at a discounted price for users and generate predictable business for restaurants, all with the goal of supporting the community through these times.

If you are interested in partnering with us to offset costs and help provide healthy, nourishing meals for our frontlines workers, please email us at  nourished@pennmedicine.upenn.edu.
