A Three-Part Message to Colchester Food Shelf Donors:

Part I: Most Important
so much to all of you who donate non-perishables to the Food Shelf. During the first quarter of 2021, you have donated over 8000, yes 8000, pounds of non-perishable food for us to distribute to those who need help!

Part II: Helpful
Please do not drop off donations when the Food Shelf is not open. Several times in the last few weeks, we have found donations left outside the Food Shelf on days when we are not open. We are only open on Wednesdays from 12 Noon to 6 PM. Volunteers are usually at the Food Shelf by 11 AM on Wednesdays.

Part III: Necessary
As much as we appreciate your donations, please be sure to check expiration dates on all items you plan to donate from your pantry. We cannot include outdated, opened, or partially used items in the groceries given to those we serve.


Thank you so much from the Board of Directors, volunteers and all those we serve!

Where Can You Find Us?
The Food Shelf is located at 245 Main Street, Colchester, between Claussen’s Greenhouse and Union Memorial School. We can also be reached by phone at 802-879-2444. If you call outside our Wednesday hours, please leave a message.
