Seneca Elders Meal Program during COVID-19 Pandemic

On March 17th, the Western New York Region began shutting down all but the most essential of services as the COVID-19 Pandemic infiltrated our communities. Native Pride owner, J C Seneca, knew that the shutdown would particularly impact Seneca Nation Elders who come to his diner everyday for their main meal. According to the Irving businessman, that knowledge led him to set up a special meal program.

“I knew that the closing of our Native Pride Diner would impact our elders who rely on us for their food,” Seneca said. “That’s why I set up an Elders Meal Program that provides one free meal from our diner every day to any Seneca Elder aged 60 or older who lives on the Cattaraugus Seneca Nation Land. All they have to do is call our diner number (716.934.7539) and place their order and we will deliver the food directly to them.

Choices of meals include any one food item from the Native Pride Diner breakfast, lunch or dinner menu. We are open: Saturday – Thursday 8am – 9pm and Friday 8am – 11pm for take-out, delivery and curbside pick up. Take-out orders until 9pm daily, last delivery order at 8:30pm. Order online here: or call for take-out here: 716-934-7539.
