Olive is a dietary worker at Greenview Lodge, a retirement home in Toronto where she has been preparing and delivering food for her elderly residents for nearly 30 years.
She always enjoyed cooking and serving healthy food. One of her favourite recipes is an awesome shepherd loaf with meat and gravy. Not only is it delicious, it is healthy too.
“It will keep you strong and add years onto your life.”
“Eating healthy is important,” Olive said. “It will keep you strong and add years onto your life.”
But her cooking isn’t the only thing that makes Olive popular among the residents in the retirement home. It’s her famous birthday songs. Every time someone has a birthday, they all want Olive to sing her “happy birthday” song. And everyone loves her for it.
Olive will be retiring in January 2016. During Healthcare Foodservice Workers Week, let’s thank Olive for her many years of service. She deserves it!
