Senior Citizens Programs

Mantua takes great pride in the programs we provide for our senior community. The details of our most popular programs are listed below. We encourage all seniors to enjoy these services while socializing with other Mantua seniors.


Senior Bus Transportation

Mantua offers a free weekday bus transportation service that takes our seniors on various shopping trips and planned outings. Some of our favorite shopping spots include ShopRite, Kmart, Target, and the Deptford Mall area. Seniors can also enjoy planned outings to the movies and events sponsored by the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders.

To sign up, please call Debbie Pollag – Senior Bus Driver (856) 468-1500 x112.


Senior Dinners

The Recreation Committee hosts free dinners for seniors at the Community Center located at 111 Mercer Ave, Sewell. The dates for the dinners are posted on the Mantua Township Senior Event Calendar.

Please make reservations no later than 3 days prior to the date of the event to ensure adequate seating and food preparation. Please note that you can only reserve a seat for yourself, or yourself and a spouse. Speak slowly and clearly, and leave your name and telephone number in a voice message.

To receive regular mailings about senior activities or to place a reservation, please contact the Clerk’s Office at (856) 468-1500 x100.


Nutrition Program

Mantua Township seniors have found that the Gloucester County Nutrition Program is a great way to enjoy a quality meal and connect with new friends. The program is an effort by the Division of Senior Services from the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders to give back to the community by providing nutritious meals throughout the year to any Gloucester County resident over the age of 60.

The lunches cost $1.25 and are served from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Mantua Township Community Center, 111 Mercer Avenue.

To make reservations, please contact (856) 468-4773.


Gloucester County Senior Services

The Division of Senior Services is the primary planning, coordinating and funding agency for senior programs and services promoting the well-being, health, and independence of Gloucester County’s older adults over the age of 60. The Division focuses especially on seniors who are vulnerable or frail and in greatest social and economic need.
