BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — A month ago, they were open seven days a week serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Now-- Dina's Restaurant in Ellicottville is open four days a week only serving take-out dinners.
Restaurants are trying to figure out this temporary normal.

Dina's General Manager, James Czora, said they hope to make an impact on the people that always support them.

For the past three weeks, Dina's has been serving up $9-dollar spaghetti and meatball dinners. All of the proceeds from those meals go towards local food banks.
With just three nights of selling spaghetti dinners, Dina's has raised almost $4,000 for the Ellicottville Food Bank, the Great Valley Food Bank, and Trading Post Community Center.

"Every single week, we are trying to see where the need is and see how we as an establishment can help," Czora said. "People are coming together in ways that make you really feel good about humanity."

Czora said to check out their Facebook to see what is on the menu.
