The Seneca Nation with the Community Planning & Development Department (CPDD) is investigating the potential for establishing a Healthy Foods Co-op on the Cattaraugus Territory. Healthy foods are being defined as non-processed foods.

The CPDD would appreciate it if you would take a few minutes to complete a short electronic survey which will automatically be returned to our consultant on this project, Adelman Research Group.
