Volunteers Install New Ovens Donated to Lynchburg Daily Bread

Lynchburg, VA - The improvements continue at Lynchburg Daily Bread thanks to another generous donation.

Thursday morning, volunteers installed two brand new commercial ovens.

It was a tricky process that involved heavy equipment.

Columbia Gas recently donated $10,000 to the organization to buy the new ovens.

At over 30 years old, the old ovens would constantly break or not cook large amounts of food properly. Volunteers say they didn't have great heat control.

"We all know the smell of burned food real well. We go uhoh what is burning. There wasn't enough time to cook, serve and keep things from burning it was hard. So it is beautiful in there. It is a stunning oven. I'm so excited," said Debbie Wombwell.

A remodeling project that will expand the dining area is also going on at the Daily Bread right now.
