For two months, 65 sheltered seniors ate Wednesday dinners on the block.
A delicious surprise was delivered to 65 Queen Village seniors-in-need, made possible by four Fitzwater families who wish to remain anonymous and a chef with a hunger to feed the less fortunate.
While the stay-at-home mandate was challenging for everyone, for those with chronic health conditions, home quarantine became a fortress against an unseen foe while the stay-at-home mandate was challenging for everyone, for those with chronic health conditions, home quarantine became a fortress against an unseen foe. This was the case for 65 residents of Courtyard Apartments at Riverview, Queen Village’s senior center high-rise at the corner of 4th and Washington. After learning of the seniors’ plight, the Fitzwater friends cooked up an idea to have 65 hot, prepared dinners delivered to the seniors on Wednesday nights.
Chef Hayman has established a special fund to accept donations to extend the Queen Village Courtyard Apartments at Riverview dinner program. Each donation goes a long way—ten dollars covers the cost of creating and delivering each hot dinner meal. To donate: https://bit..ly/ Dinner4QVseniors
