Chefs from Union Square restaurant The Fourth treated homebound seniors to personally cooked meals from the restaurant last week. The meals were delivered as part of the Chefs Deliver for Citymeals program, in which highly-regarded chefs from various New York restaurants offer up their culinary talents and deliver the meals to elderly residents who are unable to cook or shop for themselves.

The most recent delivery from Citymeals on Tuesday, April 7 was made by chefs Marco Moreira and Jason Hall of The Fourth. Hall personally delivered some of the 200 meals to Stuy Town residents with Ashley Bradford, special events director at One Five Hospitality, which includes The Fourth. On the menu was dinners of Moroccan-spiced braised chicken with peas, carrots and Israeli couscous and the remainder of meals were delivered to residents in the Lower East Side.

Citymeals board of director’s co-president and chef Daniel Boulud and Citymeals board member chef Charlie Palmer launched Chefs Deliver in January, 2014. Citymeals-on-Wheels executive director Beth Shapiro said that Citymeals started the program in response to Hurricane Sandy and it has been available about three times in Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village since its inception.
