Through our Day-End Dough-Nations™ program, all of our unsold bread and baked goods are donated to local hunger relief and charitable organizations at the end of each day. Our Panera Iowa Gives program also donates fresh bakery product as well as certificates to local non-profit organizations serving those in need. If you are interested in partnering with us for either program, please go to www.panerabread.com/versaic and fill out the form for your organization.
