CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- The Chesterfield Food Bank is dealing with increased demand during the coronavirus pandemic.

In fact, the food bank says they’re serving nearly 30,000 people each month who seek out a helping hand. That's three times, roughly 10,000 families per month, they served before the pandemic hit in March.

So, CBS 6 reporter Brendan King recently stopped by to make a donation in the latest edition of CBS 6 Gives.

"So we know that the need is still here despite the pandemic ongoing some six, seven months ago. And so we at CBS 6 and 6 Gives, we always love to give back to the community and we know that you are already doing such an amazing job doing that as well," said King.

"For months now, so many people rely on you. But we'd like to offer a donation. We went to and made our donation. So, hopefully that food and that money can go to help even more folks."

"Thank you so much. You don't know how much I appreciate it," said Kim Hill, the food bank’s CEO and Executive Director.

"We appreciate your support and getting the awareness out there about what's going on at Chesterfield Food Bank. And we're just amazed by our community and the support and thank you guys so much."

If you can donate food, money or volunteer you’re asked to go to to sign up.
