On Friday August 30, Panera Bread officially opened Café #1694 in Stafford County with a Bread Cutting ceremony followed by a check presentation to the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank. The funds are from the Panera Preview Party for a Cause which was hosted two days before the grand opening to allow the Panera staff to refine their skills among a select group of family and community friends.
Friends and community leaders came to the Preview Party to share a delicious meal for a suggested $5 donation and together they raised $2,300. All proceeds benefit the programs of the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank to help the hungry of our community. Welcome to the neighborhood Panera Café #1694!
