Detroiters can “cool off with Panera” lemonade for $1 to help combat childhood hunger in our community...

School’s out for summer, and more than 315,000 kids who usually get meals in school are home—and hungry. According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), over 17 million U.S. households are considered food insecure. Simply put, hunger is a very real struggle for many Americans.

Panera’s Lemon-Aid initiative is designed to help address this ever-worsening epidemic

On Saturday, July 21, 2012, just visit one of the 37 participating Cafes in Lathrup Village, Livonia, West Bloomfield, Novi, Sterling Heights, Rochester Hills, Southfield, Troy, Farmington, Dearborn Heights, Roseville, Shelby Township, Plymouth, Waterford, Brighton, Chesterfield Township, Grosse Pointe, Westland, Canton, Monroe, Woodhaven, Southgate, Allen Park, Bloomfield Hills, Commerce Township, Birmingham and Auburn Hills. While you are there, buy a $1 Lemonade at one of the handmade and decorated lemonade stands outside of the Panera cafes.

Panera Bread® is donating 100% of lemonade proceeds to Gleaners Community Food Bank's Hunger Free Summer Program and every $1 lemonade sold will sponsor six summer meals.

After you get your lemonade, Panera is welcoming all Detroit-area residents to tweet photos of their funniest lemonade “pucker face” using the hashtag #LemonAidDetroit.
