DELICIOUS WAYS TO SAVE LIVES
We all love food that tastes good, but what about food that also does good in our community?
Komen Missouri is proud to serve up these tasty food-related options that also benefit our mission to end breast cancer!
Mark your calendars and plan to feed your belly AND your soul!
Companion – Hope for a Cure Benefit
The bread masters at Companion are once again selling their signature baguettes to benefit Komen Missouri! From October 1 – November 1, Companion will donate 50 cents of every French baguette sold in Schnucks, Dierbergs, Straubs and other local retail outlets and in their Ladue cafe to support our mission! In addition, Companion will donate 50% of proceeds from the sale of their Octoberfest sandwich in their cafe during the five-week event. Oh, and their employees all will be rocking pink baseball caps, too!
Dine and Donate – October 22
Traditionally, Komen Missouri partners with dozens of area restaurants on the 4th Thursday in October for our annual Dine Out for a Cure event. However, we know restaurants were hit particularly hard by the pandemic, so rather than ask them to contribute a portion of their sales on October 22, we are asking our supporter to have a meal or two that day at restaurants who have been so good to us, then consider making your own direct donation to Komen Missouri instead. Visit our website in mid-October for the list of restaurants.
Nancy’s Pizza Donation Cards
During October, if you find yourself in the O’Fallon, MO area, be sure to get your pizza on at Nancy’s Pizza! Throughout Breast Cancer Action Month, Nancy’s is selling donation cards to benefit Komen Missouri
in the amount of $1, $5, $10 and $20. Nancy’s is located at 2007 Hwy. K in O’Fallon, MO.
Panera Bread Pink Ribbon Bagel® & eGift Card Promotion
In October at participating cafes, Panera turns their well-known Cherry Vanilla Bagel into the shape of a ribbon in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Eating a Panera Pink Ribbon Bagel® isn’t just an annual treat—it’s a chance to help in the fight against breast cancer.Make a difference with every bite this October. For each Pink Ribbon Bagel® sold in participating cafes this month, Panera will donate a portion of the proceeds to Susan G. Komen®. And, for a delicious gift that gives back, Panera will also donate 10% of every Pink Ribbon eGift Card sold! Order online now at PaneraBread.com and join the fight against breast cancer.
