Our fantastic friends at Panera Bread Cafes Recently presented a check to the Food Bank for $25,000 . The donation is from Panera’s “Operation DoughNation Program”. Panera Bread also donates all unsold bread and baked goods to local area hunger relief agencies and charities as part of its local Day-End Dough-Nation program. There are seven cafes in the counties served by the Food Bank and soon there will be eight. A new Café in West Nyack is opening very soon. Thank you Panera for all you do to help end hunger.
