Anyone who has chosen to get the COVID-19 vaccine will receive a free bagel daily from July 2 through July 4 at participating Panera Bread locations.
“During the past year, we have focused on uniting and serving our entire Panera family; our guests, associates and communities,” Niren Chaudhary, CEO of Panera Bread, said in a company statement. “Today, we are proud to continue our work through support of the “We Can Do This” campaign. We have come through one of our nation’s greatest crises by supporting one another, and now, together, we can all take a simple act that will help our communities overcome this pandemic.”
Throughout the past year, Panera has also remained committed to honor its belief that good food should be accessible to all. During the pandemic, Panera provided weekly family meals to its cafe associates and the company regularly donates ingredients from its supply chain to those in need.
Panera has also continued its longstanding food donation program, Day-End Doughnation®, in participating cafes, using a new contactless model to donate bread and baked goods to local community non-profits who are in need now more than ever.
No purchase is required and spreads are not included. The free bagels are available while supplies last.
