Scrip Fundraising We proudly participate in the Scrip fundraising program, helping nonprofit organizations raise money.
Panera Cares—Four Years Later Four years ago, the Panera Bread Foundation opened its first nonprofit community cafe with a simple goal: feeding those in need with dignity. Now five locations strong, the program is taking a bite out of food insecurity.
September Is Hunger Action Month All month long, Panera Bread is encouraging action to address the pervasive problem of hunger in the United States.
Just like our food, there are lots of fresh opportunities. On average, we open 100 new Panera, LLC and independent franchise bakery-cafes each year. That means new and exciting opportunities to grow with us. We think you’ll see we’re serving up something special at Panera.
