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 28 Tampa Bay area Panera Bread locations through our Share the Bread community breadboxes. Covelli Family Limited Partnership matches the funds donated by customers at each of our bakery-cafes to numerous community partners. One such recipient, the Children's Cancer Center was presented a check in the amount of $100,000.
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. In the past two years, Panera Bread donated over $5 million in food to people in need throughout the Tampa Bay area.
Panera Bread values corporate citizenship and regularly makes in-kind donations to community events and non-profit fundraisers. In the past two years, over $300,000 in product and money was donated by Covelli Family Limited Partnership of Tampa Bay to fund these events and donations.
