I heard the Panera Bread removes all left over bread EVERY night and gives it to the needy. Actually its in their commercial on TV.
Great idea and more restaurants should do the same thing!
I gotta try PB.

Much is made about veterans, that is not deserved. I do appreciate the job they did or are doing for the country. Buts lets be honest. The US military is 100% voluntary. Not like it was during the Vietnam war.
The folks serving today have made this choice, just like I made the choice to work in my industry over 40 years ago. My job was dangerous too. Maybe not "war like" dangerous, but dangerous none the less.
Sometimes I think we put to much emphasis on the hero role.
Seems a guy cannot come home from the military without a news story about it.
Just because you picked a military career or served in the military does not make you any more of an American than the guy picking up the trash.
