Rotarians came out in droves from the Chester Rotary Club to volunteer and help those in need in our local community. There are families in our shared communities that go to bed hungry every night. Chesterfield Food Bank strives to stop that from happening. They proudly serve a variety of our neighbors, the majority of whom do not qualify for government assistance. These include: single mothers working to try to put food on the table, senior citizens surviving solely on social security, veterans on disability, young couples just starting out and people who have just been 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 otherwise. They serve 1,800 people a week  through six different programs in Chesterfield county. These programs include: Food on the Move, Kids Summer Food Program, Jefferson Davis Hot Meal Program, No Senior Hungry and Pantry Partners program. Their main distribution is every Friday Night in Chester, VA. For more information, visit
