Meals on Wheels is looking for drivers to deliver food to older adults in Haverhill and other Merrimack Valley towns.

Officials of AgeSpan, which administers Meals on Wheels locally, say more than half of recipients live alone and, for many of them, the delivery person is often the only person they will see that day. “The pandemic has been especially hard on seniors, many of whom were or continue to be isolated in their homes.”

Drivers must be 18, pass a background check and have a vehicle and a valid driver’s license. They receive a daily stipend for a commitment from one to five days a week and three hours each day.
