WHY DO WE NEED YOUR HELP? Increase demand due to:
- The end of financial assistance to those who lost their jobs during the pandemic.
- The increase in homelessness.
The Colchester Food Shelf has seen a major increase in the numbers we are serving. We served 680 families in the last 6 months of 2022 and 900 families in the last six months of 2023. This is a 55% increase. Our food costs have increased by over 80%. TO THOSE WHO CAN, WE NEED YOUR HELP!
Please stay safe and well!
Help us spread the word to those that may not see the Front Porch Forum, Facebook, or website posts!
