Great American Milk Drive
April 2, 2014 - April 1, 2015
Text “MILK” to 27722 to make a $5 donation that will be converted into a coupon for our customers to be able to get a half gallon or gallon size of white milk at any area retailer.
Donations can also be made online at www.milklife.com/give. From April 15 through May 25, the MilkLife organization will match every donation, which means a $5 donation provides 2 coupons instead of just 1!
Check out this short video to learn more about the program and how important milk is to those we serve: www.milklife.com/give/videos/2342
Feeding America is one of 10 charities chosen to pilot Charity Miles, a free iPhone/Android app that empowers people to earn money for charity while walking, running or biking. Participants choose one of the app’s featured charities and hit the streets. The app will track the participant’s distance and they’ll earn money for their charity. Bikers earn 10¢ per mile; walkers and runners earn 25¢ per mile—all up to an initial $1,000,000 sponsorship pool.

Panera Bread, the Panera Bread Foundation and Feeding America are pleased to announce a strategic alliance that will be in place through December 31, 2013. This partnership builds on Panera Bread’s long history of donating its day-end bread and baked goods as well as proceeds from its Panera Cares Community Bread Box program (donation canisters at registers) to non-profits across the country, and has been forged so that Panera can better use its resources, scale and expertise to provide not only funds but also quality, nutritious food to Feeding America and its network of local food banks.
As such, Panera LLC will be donating, in partnership with its customers, 50% of the funds from its Panera Cares Community Breadboxes at more than 700 company-owned* Panera Bread bakery-cafes to support food sourcing operations at local Feeding America food banks**. The remaining 50% of funds will be used to procure high-quality, frozen soup, which will be directed to the local food bank .
In addition, Panera will match 10% of all funds donated by its customers. This 10% match will be directed to the Feeding America national office and support efforts to source and distribute quality food to the Feeding America network.
