Denny Hamlin and FedEx donate meals to Chesterfield Food Bank

NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin and primary sponsor FedEx will donate more than 60,000 meals to the Chesterfield, Va., Food Bank.

The Chesterfield Food Bank has seen an increase in demand since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, and the donation to Hamlin’s hometown will provide much needed support. The 60,000 meals donated will provide food to more than 4,400 Chesterfield families for a week.

“Chesterfield will always be my home, so during these unprecedented and difficult times we wanted to provide assistance to people in the community,” said Hamlin. “I am grateful to FedEx for supporting a community that is so close to my heart. The people of Chesterfield are in my thoughts, and I know we will come through this stronger than before.”

“Knowing that Denny Hamlin not only cares about those in need in his hometown, but that he is also stepping up to take action is happy news for our staff, our volunteers and especially for those who are in need during a difficult time,” said CFB Executive Director Kim Hill. “This generous contribution reflects what is so special about this community and the people who call it home.”
