In Our Communities photo

At Panera Bread®, we believe in giving back to local communities. We show our appreciation for customers not only within our bakery-cafes but also throughout the communities we serve by sponsoring special events open to the neighborhood, participating in charitable events and offering various Operation Dough-Nation® programs.


Community Bread Box

With the generous help of our customers, we have been collecting funds in all of our Panera Bread locations through our Share the Bread community breadboxes. We are matching all funds collected.

Day-End Dough-Nation

Another component of the Operation Dough-Nation® program is our commitment to giving back to those who are hungry in our community. At the end of each day, all unsold bread and bakery products are donated to local food banks and pantries.

Donations/Community Events

Panera Bread values corporate citizenship and regularly makes in-kind donations to community events and non-profit fundraisers.
