Lebro’s Restaurant delivers free meals to seniors in need in Amherst


GETZVILLE, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Getzville restaurant is reaching out to help local seniors in need by delivering free meals.

Carmen Paolini said the phones at Lebro’s began ringing off the hook once the word got around.

“A lot of people are cooped up, the seniors being stuck inside, not to go out and I just thought it would be a great time to give them a nice meal.”

Paolini was out delivering not one, but two fresh cooked meals to seniors in the Amherst and Williamsville area.

“I think the seniors look forward to a meal like this, it’s something special. they don’t have to worry about cooking. We’re giving them two meals today so they can heat one up for dinner tonight, save one for tomorrow.”

For everyone else, Paolini says they’re still open for take out, and don’t worry, he’s practicing social distancing while delivering.

“It’s the best thing for the seniors, they shouldn’t be leaving the house we’re putting it on the doorstep ringing their door or ringing the phone and letting them know it’s there and we won’t come in contact with them.”

The complementary deliveries continue Wednesday and Thursday. Call (716) 688-0404 if you’re interested.
