Panera Bread calls it "Operation Dough-Nation."
They donate more than $40,000 of baked goods in Kansas every day to local charities. Topeka's donations are doled out to Let's Help, the Salvation Army, and the Rescue Mission among others. Legitimate Topeka charities are encouraged to join Panera's waiting list for the dough-nations by visiting the store at Winding and Wanamaker, near WalMart.
You'll then be put in contact with Panera's Karen Cole in the Kansas City office. Kansas Manager Joan Unger explains the program.
