  • Erie County Department of Senior Services is interested in starting a restaurant dining pilot program for Older Adults in Erie County. The Department would like to partner with locally owned establishments within Erie County that would be willing to work together to offer nutritious, well balanced menu items at a cost to be assumed by the Department of Senior Services. The Department wishes to provide Dine- In breakfast, lunch and dinner options to program participants, though all 3 options do not need to be provided at each location.
