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. In 2013 alone, Covelli Enterprises donated over $19 million to local food banks, hunger relief agencies and other community organizations.


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.
