Panera Bread Gives to the Community

Bread and cookies are quickly sorted for distribution to organizations in the county. Image by Jim Satterwhite.

Panera Bread® is more than a restaurant.  They are members of each and every community they serve.  Panera believes that it is important to do what they can to support worthy organizations within the community.  The premier corporate program is Day End Dough-Nation.  At the end of each day, the bakery-cafes package unsold bread and baked goods to donate to local hunger relief and charitable organizations.

Volunteers then go to each site within a reasonable area.  The distribution point is a church in Farmersville.  Bread destined for Hunt County is then brought to Redeemer Lutheran Church to be divided.  Some goes the Boles Home, some to the Salvation Army, a some to the Greenville Soup Kitchen and the Women in Need home.

Volunteers then drive the bread to various distribution points in the county.  If your organization needs bread then call Redeemer Lutheran between 08:30 – 11:00 to be placed on the distribution list.
