Panera Against Hunger

At Panera Bread®, we believe in giving back to our local communities. We have worked to help combat the problem of hunger for over 25 years, since we first began donating our unsold bread and baked goods to local organizations. Since then, over efforts in the hunger space have grown to include various charitable initiatives, donations and numerous other efforts.

Panera’s various programs are designed to feed people in need, raise the level of awareness about food insecurity in this country, and provide a vehicle for people to help one another.
