Cartoon TurkeyThe Colchester Food Shelf is preparing for Thanksgiving and is looking once again to you, our loyal Colchester residents, who have continued to be wonderful, generous, and reliable supporters of the food shelf. We would like to be able to offer dinner fixings along with a turkey to food shelf clients and are looking for the following: boxed scalloped potatoes, turkey gravy, green bean casserole ingredients, boxed stuffing mix, and cranberry sauce.

We will be turning on our freezers to accept turkeys (14-16 lbs is a good size) beginning Tuesday, November 13. Distribution to clients will be Monday, November 19.

Please make donations during our hours listed below. Please do not leave food items outside the door of the food shelf.

Hours for Client Shopping and Donations:
Tuesdays and Thursdays from 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Wednesdays from 3:30 – 6:00 p.m.

Special Hours for Donations:
