Participating Panera Bread locations are collecting donations at their registers during the month of June to fight hunger and poverty in the greater Mercer County area. Customers can simply add a dollar or two to their receipt and the contributions will go directly to the Mercer Street Friends Food Bank.

“New Jersey has been our home for more than a decade,” said Panera Bread owner Jim Nawn. “We value our partnership with the local food banks that provide such important support for so many families. Thanks to our great customers, we are able to support the vitality of our local communities as well in their time of need.”
