We serve a hot, nutritious meal to the homeless and hungry of the Lynchburg area, 365 days a year. Centrally located in downtown Lynchburg, we serve approximately 160 people per day.
We have recently expanded our efforts to reach pockets of poverty in the counties and in low income Lynchburg apartment complexes that are too far to walk to us. As funding allows, we are adding drivers to save more food, and adding meals outreach sites. We are currently in Appomattox, Amherst County and at 4 Lynchburg apartments.
Lynchburg Daily Bread was founded in 1982 by the First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg. A permanent home was established in 1989 at the Knights of Columbus Building on the corner of Eighth and Clay Streets. Owning the building became a reality through a challenge to the community from the Greif Bros. Corporation. They agreed to donate half of the purchase cost of the building if the greater Lynchburg community would raise the rest. The challenge was met through generous support from area businesses and individuals. Daily Bread not only had a permanent home, but increased its service by almost 25 percent.
In 2013-14, The Rotary Club of Lynchburg renovated our dining area to increase the number of seats available. St. John's Church renovated our morning shelter/waiting area - a place to warm up, get some coffee and cereal, while waiting for lunch to be served.
