Chesterfield County food pantries.

Information on both food pantries as well as soup kitchens in Chesterfield County is located below. Thousands of families from the county as well as surrounding towns receive assistance from the centers. Most of them are non-profits, but there are also some government supported food banks and services as well, such as applications to SNAP food stamps or the WIC program, also known as Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children.

The pantries will offer everything from free groceries to holiday programs. There can also be household supplies given out, such as free school supplies. Also, many of the Chesterfield Virginia organizations will also operate a clothing closet for very low income families in the area.

So whether someone needs clothing, a box of food, or services such as Meals on Wheels for a senior, the main agencies are below. Or call them for help at Christmas or Thanksgiving, and clients can apply for a hot meal or a gift for their child.
