At the end of the night, Panera donates all the leftover pastries and bread to a homeless shelter. However, the man that looks like Santa Claus does not show up for the leftovers, you might get to take some free pastries home because the can’t be sold the next day.

If a good deal of coverage if you work full time. Dental and health insurance are provided. Part-timers don't get health benefits. And then employee discount is available to those who work that day for their shift.
