A cartoon turkey and a pumpkin.

The Colchester Food Shelf is preparing for another Thanksgiving season. The freezers will be turned on and ready to go to begin accepting turkeys on Tuesday, November 19.

Our goal is to be able to provide registered clients with a turkey and dinner fixings for Thanksgiving. In order to reach that goal, we anticipate that we will need approximately 100 turkeys.

We are looking for the following items: turkeys (between 14 and 18 pounds is a good size), boxed scalloped or mashed potatoes, green bean casserole ingredients (green beans, cream of mushroom soup, French’s Crispy Fried Onions), boxed stuffing mix, cranberry sauce, and turkey gravy.

Please help us spread the word!

Donations can be made during the hours listed below. Please do not leave food items outside the door of the food shelf during non-business hours.
