As we, the Board of Directors of the Colchester Community Food Shelf, value the health of our community, our clients and our volunteers, we will be adapting our distribution of groceries beginning this Tuesday, March 17th.
Staying in their vehicle, clients will be guided to the side door of the Food Shelf and their registration information verified and visit recorded. Using the normal shopping list, volunteers will have prepared bags of groceries. The client will be given a choice of a meat product, if they have pets that need food, and volunteers will add milk, eggs, and produce. Groceries will then be brought out to the vehicle.
We hope that this method will not last too long, but it will continue as long as the safety of clients and volunteers needs to be protected.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Colchester Community Food Shelf Board of Directors
