Bagels for Bravery Chicagoland

May 16, 2020 Update: It has been an amazing experience and an honor for us to support our local front line workers the past few weeks through Bagels for Bravery. With the launch of a national program, Meals for Heroes, we have decided to suspend Bagels for Bravery to support a wider network of front line workers. Please join us and support Meals for Heroes.

Weโ€™ve started an initiative for our guests to donate food delivery to healthcare workers in the communities we serve, as an act of gratitude for the hard work they are putting in every day to keep us safe. Let’s help them feel that sense of community and together say thank you.

We are here to help provide and deliver clean food in mindful packaging with contactless delivery straight to the hospital, if you would like to give back and help fuel them with meals at this critical time. This is also a chance to support our local bakery-cafe employees and delivery drivers.

Our local hospitals staff are working tirelessly to keep us all safe while we are staying home to keep them safe.

Bagels for Bravery

Bagels for Bravery – the idea originated by a manager, Michael Vella (and wife Rebecca) at the Lockport IL bakery-cafe whose goal is to help his community by delivering as many bagels as possible to nearby hospitals.

Why Tuesday? Panera offers Bagel Tuesdays or a bakers dozen for a great price at $6.99 on Tuesdays.

When you make a DONATION we will deliver bagels to the first reponders from your nearest bakery-cafe, please indicate your preferred location along with your personal note when you make a donation.
