LAST WEDNESDAY FOR SUMMER SCHOOL: Buses will be picking up summer school students at Union Memorial School between 12 Noon and 1 PM, and we ask that you line up from the Claussen’s side of the Food Shelf parking lot. Please be sure not to block their entrances/driveways. We will guide you back to the school side when bus transportation is complete.

REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS: Please bring reusable bags if available.

PROOF OF RESIDENCE INFORMATION: Please don’t forget to bring Proof of Residency if you are a new client or if requested. Proof would be a current bill, lease, etc., with your name and address. A driver’s license or car registration can not be used as Proof of Residence.

COLCHESTER GARDENERS: Thank you to all the local gardeners who are bringing their extra produce to the Food Shelf. Two volunteers are at the Food Shelf at 11 AM on Wednesdays getting ready for the day.

THANK YOU to all who came to the Open House on Saturday, July 29. Also, a thank you to the Colchester Lions Club for providing the hot dogs and burgers. We received canned goods and cash donations that more than made our matching goal of $1000.00!

DONATIONS: Thank you to all who donate so generously. Please only leave donations on Wednesdays/Saturdays (when we are open). 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).
