“If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

― Chinese Proverb

August at the CCFS!

The summer is in full swing and so are things at the Colchester Food Shelf! We have a lot going on this month. Please help us by sharing our August events with your friends and family near and far!

A small clock and the words "Extended Hours"“Second Saturday” Hours Extended

Due to demand, the food shelf has decided to continue the extended Saturday hours on the second Saturday of each month. That being said, the Colchester Food Shelf will be open this Saturday, August 11, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Our volunteer staff will be available to receive donations and/or to help clients with their monthly shopping trip.

Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program for August

The Hannaford Supermarket has chosen the Colchester Food Shelf AGAIN as a beneficiary of the Hannaford Helps Reusable Bag Program! For this round, we are the recipients at the Hannaford located on Dorset Street in South Burlington for the entire month of August! As a reminder, every time anyone purchases a Fight Hunger bag at this location, we receive $1!

This is truly a great opportunity for us and an easy way for you to show your support for the food shelf! When you are out doing your shopping or just running your errands out in South Burlington, consider stopping in and picking up a bag (or two or more!) from the reusable bag rack! And remember to spread the word – the more bags purchased, the bigger donation to the food shelf.

Sign with information about buying Fight Hunger bags.

As always, thank you for your continued support of the Colchester Food Shelf!
