BOLTON HILL, Md. — Chefs at The Tilted Row were back at work Friday preparing high quality meals for seniors in Bolton Hill.

"We have chili, jasmine rice and we’re making cauliflower mac and cheese," said executive chef Andy Thomas.

Much of the ingredients come from the Bolton Hill restaurant which has been closed since Governor Larry Hogan gave the executive order on March 16. The lunches prepared by the restaurant's staff were packaged and delivered to seniors living at Park Avenue Apartments.

"It’s incredibly important in these times to help people," said Thomas. "People can’t go out. They shouldn’t go out. If we have the ability to bring something that’s nutritious and it’s something that I love to do, we should be doing more of it."

Staff at the senior apartment living community couldn't talk on camera but they took to social media with their tanks.

"Just wanted to give a huge shout out to the Tilted Row and their employees!," read the post. "Z and his staff are volunteering their time to make meals for our seniors here at Linden Park Apartments once again! They are truly amazing!! Thanks Ziad Maalof and your entire team at The Tilted Row!"

The Tilted Row made and packaged roughly 200 meals.

"We were so thankful for because it’s nice for the neighborhood to come together at a time like this," said Jean. She didn't want to give her last name but added, "It's nice to know people are remembering the seniors especially because most people forget all about us."
