The Seneca Nation food distribution program is a federally funded program that provides a nutritious food package to eligible participants living on or near the Alleghany and Cattaraugus territories. Eligibility is based on income and those on a fixed income are automatically eligible. We still have the CHEESE (Native Gold) but we have evolved over the years and now offer a more nutritious food package. We still offer canned foods some with lower sodium, frozen meats such as Turkey, Ham, whole chickens, ground beef and beef roast. We also have fresh fruits and vegetables in most cases locally grown (during summer) but all grown in the United States. Our program is located on the Cattaraugus Territory @ 12885 route 438 Irving N.Y. 14081 stop in or call us @ 716 532 1028   NYA WEH
