You Can Make A Difference!
There are families in our shared communities that go to bed hungry every night. Chesterfield Food Bank exists to give a hand up, to those in need. Our main clients are those who do not qualify for government assistance. This group includes the single mom working to try to put food on the table, the senior citizen surviving solely on social security, the veteran on disability, the young couple just starting out, and the person that just got laid off from their job. In cooperation with Social Services we are locating and helping those families and individuals that may not have been helped in the past.
Host a food drive or make a financial contribution. The Chesterfield Food Bank runs completely on donations. We can accept donations online at chesterfieldfoodbank.org or in person at our office 12211 Ironbridge Road, Chester, Virginia 23831.

Chesterfield Food Bank Programs
With the assistance of volunteers from social services, our county government, local businesses, churches and Chesterfield school board, we are excited to offer regular food distribution dates in five areas throughout Chesterfield including Chester, Hopkins, Ettrick and Chalkley areas.
The Chesterfield Food Bank is committed to the whole person. Through our Learning Center, we will introduce our clients to the tools they need, and help motivate them to be proactive in their future growth. The Learning Center classes will be a community supported project.
There are children in our very own community that rely completely on free or reduced meals from their school to stay fed. Through amazing food drives hosted by our dedicated community, in 2016 we collected 1.2 million pounds of food items and served approximately 6,000 children over 70,000 meals in 11 weeks. Help us continue to insure these children have enough to eat through the upcoming summer months. Summer program dates are from June 19 thru September 1, from 4-6pm, with 7 distribution locations.
The Chesterfield Food Bank provides food to 5 different partnering locations that
provide hot meals Mon.-Fri. evenings in the Jefferson Davis corridor area. Please contact our office for locations and times.
The Chesterfield Food Bank is committed that no senior will be hungry. We provide food to seniors that live on a low fixed income a months worth of essential groceries for good health. Meats and fresh veggies are apart of every distribution.
We have many partners who are helping us make a difference in the Chesterfield community.
