Chesterfield Food Bank averaging a million meals per month during the pandemic, triples in donations

Sharing is Caring!

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — Cars filled two lanes for over half a mile leading up to the Chesterfield Food Bank on Friday. This kind of backup has been seen on Ironbridge Road every weekend for the past several months.

Before COVID-19 spread around the world, the Chesterfield Food Bank was helping anywhere from 8,000 to 12,000 people a month.

Now, they say nearly 30,000 people utilize the food bank’s distribution programs each month — with 200 to 400 volunteers offering their help every week.
