The Citizen also wants to give well-deserved praise to the Panera Bread restaurant chain.  At the end of each day, Panera Bread donates all unsold bread and baked goods to local area hunger relief agencies and charities as part of its local Day-End Dough-Nation program. Collectively, Panera bakery-cafes donated a retail value of approximately $100 million worth of unsold bread and baked goods in 2012 to help fight food insecurity in our communities.  Be sure to remember to thank the good folks at Panera for this great community service to the hungry. In our own community Sunday School classes and other small groups and individuals associated with non-profits regularly participate in this project, showing up at closing time to pick up the unsold bread and distribute it to those who need to be blessed.

You should make plans now to attend the Hampton Roads Leadership Prayer Breakfast at the Chesapeake Conference Center on Nov. 12th. This will be the first time in 38 years that it has been held outside of Norfolk.  Dr. Carlos Campo will be the keynote speaker, and if you haven’t heard him speak before, you’re in for a treat.  Come join many elected officials and leading clergy in praying for our cities, our state and our nation.  It is open to everyone.  See the ad on page 16 for details on how to buy tickets.
