Press release from the Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry:
After many years of faithful service on 24 Cumberland Ave. ABCCM Crisis Ministry is renaming its Daily Meal to ABCCM’s Daily Bread @ Sonrise, and locating ABCCM’s Daily Bread @ Sonrise to 1543 Patton Ave., Asheville, NC. Up to 140 meals for the homeless will be served in the form of a to-go style lunch with a hot soup, sandwich and dessert.
The serving hours at the new location are to begin Monday, Sept. 21, at 11:30 a.m., with weekly hours Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. This is made possible by volunteers from these churches: Asheville First Baptist, Asheville First Church of the Nazarene, Asheville Mennonite, Basilica of St. Lawrence, Bell UMC, Biltmore Church, Central UMC, Covenant Community UMC, King of Glory, Missio Dei, St. Barnabas Catholic, St. Eugene Catholic, St. Mark’s Lutheran, St. Matthews Anglican, Trinity Baptist.
Since 1969 ABCCM has been committed to providing food, shelter and emergency assistance to those in need for our ever growing community. The new location at 1543 Patton Ave. will extend ABCCM services to the West Asheville area where hot meals will be provided during the week as well as other ABCCM services and resources to those in need.
“We are thankful for the partnership with Mt. Pisgah Seventh Day Adventist Church for sharing the location so together we may positively impact our community with a place for people to come as we serve one another in the name of Christ,” said the Rev. Scott Rogers, ABCCM executive director.
