Embrace Life! Stay Connected!

The Clarence Senior Center enriches the lives of seniors in our community through a wide variety of activities, programs, classes and experiences that will educate, inform, entertain and involve them. Seniors aged fifty-five and over are welcome regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, or nationality.  With over 1000 members, the Senior Center is a busy place where members can come for an hour or stay for the day and enjoy all that we have to offer!

Nutritious Meals

The CSC is an Erie County Nutrition Program Dining Site open to Erie County residents 60 or older and their spouses. We offer lunches Monday through Friday as part of our Stay Fit Dining Program, as well as dinner every Tuesday, which is prepared by a nutrition coordinator, who along with our wonderful volunteers, prepares and serves lunch at 12:15 PM, and Tuesday dinner at 5:00 PM. Reservations are needed, and can be made by calling 716-633-5138 or on site. If you have a reservation and can’t make it, cancellations are required.

Special Luncheons with entertainment are also held throughout the year!

The suggested contribution for meals is $3.00 for those 60 and older. Guests under 60 will be charged $5.00 for their meals.

Meals are well-balanced, healthy, and nutritious, with consideration being given to those who have special dietary needs. Meals are ordered two weeks in advance and supplied by the Erie County Congregate Dining Program.

Frozen Meals to Eat at Home

Frozen meals are available once a week for registered participants. Milk and dessert will be included with each meal. Just like the Stay Fit Dining Program, the suggested contribution is $3.00 per meal. Your contribution will be collected when you pick up your meals.

There are 3 meal and 5 meal per week options. You will not be able to select your individual meals at this time–they will come as a “meal pack” clearly labeled and including directions on how to reheat. Entr?e items will include items such as meatballs and gravy, pulled pork, chicken breasts, chicken tenders, and various other healthy and delicious meals that have been tested and freeze well.

This program is available to all seniors of Erie County who are able to pick up their meals each week.

Reservations must be called in by 11:00 AM on the Wednesday of each week preceding the week of pick up. Meals will need to be picked up on Monday between 9:30 AM-10:00 AM in front of the Center, under the drive-thru.

If you would like more information, or would like to sign up call us at 716-633-5138.

Shuttle for Residents

The Town of Clarence provides a shuttle for Center use. Its main purpose is to provide transportation for members, who are Clarence residents, to and from the Center.

The shuttle picks up passengers Monday through Friday. Members can call the office at 716-633-5138 to make arrangements. Reservations are on a first call, first reserved basis. Passengers vary on a daily basis, thus pick up times will also fluctuate.

Weekly trips are scheduled to area supermarkets and shopping centers. Unfortunately, the CSC shuttle is unable to transport members for medical appointments. The current shopping schedule is subject to change and can be found in the latest issue of our newsletter.

A suggested donation is requested to help defray costs, which can be handed to the driver when boarding. The responsibility of shuttle drivers is limited to providing hand held assistance to passengers as they enter or leave the shuttle.

Other transportation options for seniors are available through Rural Transit or The Erie County Going Places van. Find more information on those on our Resources page, or by contacting the office.
