You can help fight hunger in Arkansas by grabbing a quick bite.
On Friday, March 8, Panera Bread restaurants across the state will donate a portion of all sales to snack programs around Arkansas.
In Bentonville and Fayetteville, your purchase will help raise money for the Samaritan Community Center's Snack Pack program.
It's a non-profit that makes sure local kids have healthy food to eat outside of school hours.
The Fort Smith location will donate its proceeds to Community Clearinghouse and its Meals for Kids program.
Panera Bread will make a donation to the programs when the following items are ordered:
Whole Mediterranean Salmon Salad, Salmon Caesar Salad, or Salmon Club Sandwich ($2 donation)
Any You Pick Two Combination with a Salmon item ($1 donation)
Cinnamon Roll ($1 donation)
Last year Panera Bread donated almost $5,000 to local snack/back pack programs in Arkansas, according to a press release.
