· Pay it Forward – For the month of March, Panera Bread is partnering with the Los Angeles Food Bank to channel all community-driven donations to the Kids Programs.
“We are proud to partner with the Los Angeles Food Bank during their 40th year to help raise awareness for our neighbors in need,” said Sandy McElfresh, Director of Sales and Marketing of Manna Development, LLC, a Franchisee of Panera Bread, LLC. “It is estimated that 1.7 million people in Los Angeles County are currently food insecure. That number affects all of us – family members, friends, and children.”
Panera Bread will channel donations for the LAFB Kids Program through the Community Breadbox™, located inside each cafe. With help from the LAFB Kids Cafe program leaders, two kids nutrition classes are offered to My Panera members in La Cañada and Carson.
“We are excited to have Panera Bread stand with us in the fight against hunger in the L.A. County,” said Michael Flood, President and CEO of the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank. “This partnership will help get more food on the table through the Panera Bread Breadbox program, while providing nutrition awareness. We are deeply grateful for the cafés’ support and local donations, as well as their help with bringing this important issue to light.”
If you would like to contribute to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, please look for the Community Breadbox collection containers at every Panera Bread café in the L.A. region.
For each $1 contributed, the Food Bank is able to provide 4 meals for those in need!!
