Many arms/hands raised in a rainbow of colors with the word Volunteer above them.

As we expected, there are times when we have plenty of volunteers and times when we need a few more. This is one of those ‘needy’ times.

We are looking for adult volunteers to work in the Food Shelf during hours when we are open for clients: Wednesdays are 11 AM to 2 PM, 12 Noon to 2 PM, 2 PM to 4 PM, and 4 PM to 6 PM, and first Saturday of each month from 8:30 AM to 11:00 AM.

Our need seems to fall especially on the third shift from 4 PM to 6 PM and Saturdays. There may be some Wednesdays when we need to fill another shift but we are looking for volunteers that are available for that last shift in the afternoon.

If you are interested in helping, please email me at, and I would be happy to give you a little more information.

Thank you for taking the time to serve fellow citizens of Colchester.

President, Colchester Food Shelf Board of Directors
