Rochester Hills, Mich. (WXYZ) - With school’s out for summer, more than 315,000 children who normally eat meals in school are home and hungry.

Panera Bread will donate 100% of lemonade proceeds to Gleaners Community Food Bank’s Hunger Free Summer effort. Every $1 lemonade sold will sponsor six summer meals.
The participating Panera Bread stores are locate at: Rochester and Auburn roads, Adams Road and at Livernois Road and Walton Boulevard. Panera is also welcoming all Metro Detroit residents to tweet photos of their funniest lemonade “pucker face” using the hashtag #LemonAidDetroit.
