As families get settled into the hustle and bustle of back-to-school schedules, Panera Bread, makers of delicious bread items, soups, salads, sandwiches, pastas and more, want to remind guests that the bakery-café is a great better for you food option to consider when they need a meal in a pinch.

The Pink Ribbon Bagel is back!
Panera Bread has announced the return of its Pink Ribbon Bagel at participating bakery-café locations, such as:
– Long Island,
– Brooklyn and
– Staten Island
to raise awareness and funds for local breast cancer organizations during October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Shaped in the form of the iconic pink ribbon, the Pink Ribbon Bagel is a delicious cherry-vanilla bagel featuring cherry chips, dried cherries and cranberries, vanilla, honey and brown sugar, and is baked fresh each morning by Panera’s bakers at each participating bakery-café. Yum!
The month-long campaign will officially kick off on October 1 with the Power of Pink Day, in which 100 percent of the proceeds from sales of Panera Bread’s Pink Ribbon Bagel will be donated to local breast cancer charities. Throughout the remainder of the month, a portion of proceeds from sales will go towards the support of research, education and efforts to raise awareness for the cause. In 2013, Panera Bread locations across Long Island, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island raised over $36,000 during its Pink Ribbon Bagel campaign.
On Long Island, Panera Bread’s Pink Ribbon Bagel funds will benefit Huntington Breast Cancer Action Coalition, Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline and Support Program and The Breast Cancer Research Program at Cold Spring Harbor Research Laboratory. Funds raised by Panera Bread locations in Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island will support Gilda’s Club New York City.
