On Tuesday, February 18, Jen Caplinger, general manager of the Austin Landing Panera Bakery-Café presented a check for $26,000 from Panera Bread’s Operation Dough-Nation Program to board members of the Children’s Hunger Alliance, an organization dedicating efforts to feed hungry children in Dayton.

“We appreciate their generosity. Over 47,000 children are living with childhood hunger in Dayton, so we look forward to our young ones and adults enjoying a morning of physical activity, healthy foods, and fun as we tackle childhood hunger together,” said Shanikka Flinn, Director of Media and Communications, Children’s Hunger Alliance.

The Austin Landing's Panera Bread Café is one of many locations that have a Community Breadbox collection container at each set of registers. The boxes encourage customers to donate to a critical non-profit organization in the community. In this instance, the money was collected for the Children’s Hunger Alliance. These cash donations are matched dollar-for-dollar by Panera Bread and then in turn donated directly to the organization.

There is nothing more frightening than starving children in the Dayton area. In a world where food appears to be plentiful, so many families have lost their main source of income or are having a hard time getting their feet on the ground. It’s not so hard to believe families often are left hungry, but it’s sometimes easy to forget about the unfortunate. The Children’s Hunger Alliance foundation joins forces with hundreds of supporters to feed the unfortunate and help their future be brighter.

“We take pride in leading the charge on the fight against hunger while raising awareness about hungry children right here in our own backyards,” said Craig Flom, President of Breads of the World, LLC, and franchisee of Panara Bread.
