Chesterfield Food Bank
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.
Their 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 Local Social Services, they are locating and helping those families and individuals that would not have been helped, in the past. They strongly believe in the principle, "Give a man a fish and feed him today, teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime."
Currently, in Chesterfield, they serve 1800 people a week through their many programs and distributions. They are excited to be moving towards not only serving Chesterfield but surrounding counties. Learn how you can help support them at the show.
