Thank you Hannaford Shoppers
The Colchester Food Shelf was the beneficiary of the Hannaford Fight Hunger Bag Program for the month of April. The generous shoppers (including those who may have forgotten their reusable bags at home when they went shopping) purchased enough reusable bags to raise $390 for the Colchester Food Shelf in the month of April!
The Colchester Food Shelf will be open on Wednesday, May 19 from 12 Noon to 6 PM.
We continue to be open only on Wednesdays from 12 Noon to 6 PM. Volunteers will greet those needing food assistance outside at their cars. *** Please wear a face mask the entire time you are at the Food Shelf. Also, please make sure there is room in your TRUNK or BACK of SUV. If groceries must be placed on the back seat, we will leave them at the car for you to place in the car. ***
If you are coming to the Food Shelf for your monthly visit and have not provided your Colchester proof of residency this year you need to do so at THIS visit to the Food Shelf. Please bring your Proof of Residency when you visit the Food Shelf. Documentation should be a bill, such as a utility bill, insurance bill, etc., or a mortgage/lease agreement. A driver’s license and/or car registration can NOT be used for Proof of Residency.
Thank you so much for the donated groceries each week. Please remember to bring items only on Wednesdays. Volunteers are at the Food Shelf beginning at 11 AM on Wednesdays preparing for the day. If you want to drop off donations between 11 AM and 12 Noon, please come to the side door of the Food Shelf. If you would like to drop off donations between 12 Noon and 6 PM, you can park at Claussen’s Greenhouse. You will find the donation container near the left garage door at the Food Shelf. We can always use cereal, pasta sauce, peanut butter and jelly, bottled juice, baking items (like flour and sugar), baked beans, and canned meals (like Ravioli, beef stew, Spaghetti O’s, etc.).
Not feeling well? Someone can pick up groceries on your behalf! Please call us to complete the perishables information and let us know who is picking up groceries for you. You can reach the Food Shelf at 802-879-2444.
PLEASE STAY SAFE AND WELL! We hope everyone is getting the vaccine.
