Senior Citizens

Mantua takes great pride in the programs we provide for  our senior community. The details of our most popular programs are listed below. I strongly encourage all seniors to come out and enjoy our services as well as the chance to  socialize with the other Mantua Seniors. Also, during the “Dog Days of Summer”, remember stay hydrated and plan any outdoor activities for early in the day.

Mantua offers a free bus transportation service Monday thru Friday that takes our seniors on various shopping trips and planned outings.

 NUTRITION PROGRAM:

Mantua Township Seniors have found Gloucester County Nutrition Program a great way to enjoy a quality meal and a way to connect with new friends. The cost is $1.25. The program is an effort by the Division of Senior Services from the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders to give back a little something to the community. The program has nutritious meals throughout the year and is offered to anyone over the age of 60 that is a Gloucester County resident. The lunches are served from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Mantua Twp. Community Center, 111 Mercer Avenue. To make reservations, please contact 856-468-4773.
