Panera Cares collection box

Panera Cares® Community Breadbox™

We put the cash donations you make in our bakery-cafes to work supporting local non-profit organizations in your communities.

Through Panera’s relationship with Feeding America®, the nation’s leading anti-hunger organization, participating member food banks in more than 75 U.S. markets are able to provide the same soup served in Panera’s cafes to local food pantries and other organizations serving those in need. The program is sponsored by the Panera Bread Foundation and supported by cash donations from Panera customers through the Panera Cares® Community Breadbox™ program in participating bakery-cafes. Half of the donations are used to help fund soup procurement and the other half is donated as cash to support Feeding America member food banks in their effort to provide quality, nutritious food.  A portion of cash donations made by customers in participating bakery-cafes may be matched by Panera or its franchisees.

If you would like to contribute to our efforts to assist local non-profit organizations in the communities we serve, please look for the Panera Cares Community Breadbox collection containers at participating Panera Bread or Saint Louis Bread Co.® locations.
