Helping Hungry Children in Cincinnati

Did you know that a bread bowl could fill bellies AND warm hearts? Everyday, roughly 500,000 Ohio children don’t know where their next meal is coming from. During the coldest month of the year, Panera Bread’s Soup for the Soul fundraiser is leading the Southwest Ohio community in eliminating this hunger statistic.

Now through February 28, $0.25 from every bread bowl sale will help fund cooking classes that teach families in need how to make healthy, affordable meals at home. All proceeds benefit Panera Bread’s local Operation Doughnation partner, Children’s Hunger Alliance.

What: Panera Bread’s Soup for the Soul
Benefitting Operation Doughnation partner, Children’s Hunger Alliance
When: February 1 – 28
Where: All Southwest Ohio Panera Bread bakery-cafes
Why: To feed local children and families in need during the coldest month of the year
How: Simply purchase a bread bowl for your friends, colleagues, family or yourself and/or drop spare cash and coins into any Operation Doughnation collection boxes!

Please spread the feel-good news about Soup for the Soul this winter – tell family, email friends, invite colleagues out for a bread bowl of soup … there are so many ways you can make a difference! Day or night, dine-in or to-go, every bread bowl you buy helps the Children’s Hunger Alliance to feed one more hungry child and to educate one more struggling family.
