Panera Supports Youth “In Knead”

Panera Bread Supports FFC Youth

May is Foster Care Awareness Month, so Panera Bread is helping to raise awareness and funding for the Foundation for Foster Children!

From May 12-26, Panera Bread will support foster youth by selling a fun flip-flop cookie. 100% of the proceeds will go to the FFC in support of foster youth! These donated funds provide enrichment activities for foster children through the Fostering Success Program.


Funded activities include:

  • athletics
  • art
  • music
  • dance
  • class pictures
  • uniforms
  • summer camps
  • prom tickets
  • cap and gown
  • and more!

For several years now, Panera has proved an invaluable partner of the Foundation for Foster Children. Through their financial support, their continuous fundraising promotions, and their enthusiasm to employ our kids, Panera constantly supports the Foundation. Without organizations like Panera who are committed to their communities, non-profits like the Foundation could not thrive.

We’re happy to see Panera continue their support throughout the month of May. Communities all around the nation use Foster Care Awareness Month to increase support and involvement with foster youth.

Make sure to get your flip-flop cookie in support of children in foster care in Central Florida! From May 12th to May 26th, you can stop by any Panera location in Central Florida and know you are supporting the Foundation for Foster Children.
