Call for Community Groups!
Because all of Panera’s bakery items are baked fresh daily using no preservatives, Panera donates all leftover bakery product at the end of each business day. At the close of business each night, bakery café associates package unsold bread and bakery items to donate to local hunger relief and charitable organizations. The Day-End Dough-Nation™ program addresses hunger issues in our community and Panera is happy to share its unsold bakery products with local partner organizations.
Panera Bread currently has openings for new Day-End Dough-Nation partners in the Springfield, MO area.
If you know of a community group who could utilize a weekly donation of our bread/bakery items, or for more information about the Day-End Dough-Nation program, please contact Erin Barnhart at Erin.Barnhart@ilovepanera.com.
