Generous "Dough-Nation" by Panera Bread


Panera Bread is a popular chain of bakery-café casual restaurants, with locations in York Region. With nearly 2,000 bakery-cafés in Canada and the US, including in Aurora and Thornhill, their successful business model focuses on offering healthy, home baked breads and meals - with a side order of compassion for those in need.

The Panera Bread Foundation has a strong tradition of working with non-profit partners to help feed those in need.  They give back to local communities by donating unsold baked goods and making in-kind donations to select charities, through their on-going "Day-End Dough-Nation™ program".

The Alzheimer Society of York Region is pleased to be a beneficiary of Panera products, which specifically help people with dementia attending two of our DAY Programs.  Twice a week, AS York receives a bounty of  bread and other baked goods, helping to ensure that those attending the DAY program continue to receive healthy and nutritious meals and snacks every day. Thanks to the generous support of Panera Bread in Aurora, and their friendly local managers, hundreds of families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease will benefit from their "Dough-Nation" support.
