Reusable bags packed with food items.


The Board of Directors and Volunteers at the Colchester Food Shelf hope that you had a nice holiday weekend. Our thoughts go out to those who have lost a loved one in military service to our country and our gratitude to all those who have and do serve our country.

Remember this Wednesday is still May, the fifth Wednesday of May. We are open on Wednesday and also the first Saturday of the month, this Saturday, June 3.

Don’t forget to bring Proof of Residency if new or asked to bring it at your last visit.

DONATIONS: Thank you to all who donate so generously. The high-priority items are those that are on the shopping list used by our clients. You can find a list of high-priority items by visiting the Donate page on our website (or click here to view the list).

COLCHESTER GARDENERS: To our great local gardeners, as you prepare your gardens and plan what you are going to grow, please consider planting a little extra for the Food Shelf. Over the last few summers you have produced hundreds of pounds that you have shared with us and we hope you will do the same this summer.

Please stay safe and well!
