A senior lunch program coordinated by the Pride Center of Western New York at Preservation Pub near the Buffalo Niagara Medical Campus offers a healthy monthly meal.

Every fourth Monday of the month, Preservation Pub at 946 Main St. hosts Erie County's Stay Fit Dining Program for those 60 and up.

The location is the only restaurant to host the county program. Many others are located in senior centers.

"The county approached me and asked if I'd be interested, and I said, 'I'd love to,'" said Preservation Pub owner Roslyn Righetti.

Some months, more than 20 show up; and other times, it's between 12 and 20 hungry seniors to feed.

"It's going very, very well," Righetti said.

"It adds to the services in the community and this has an ambiance for them to go to a bar/restaurant," she said.

A county nutritionist helps plan the menu. Seniors do not have to pay for the meal, but suggested contributions are $3 each and $5 for guests/visitors.
