The Colchester Food Shelf will be open on Wednesday, May 26 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 go on the back seat, the volunteers will leave the groceries at the car for you to place in your car. ***
