Since 2008, the Colchester Food Shelf has been registered as a Network Partner of the Vermont Foodbank. As a Network Partner, food can be purchased at discounted prices, to help supplement food received from the community at large.
The Food Shelf relies for help and supplies on continued donations from Colchester residents, churches, schools, organizations, and businesses.
