Donation Requests

At Le Pain Quotidien, we believe that community is what nurtures, inspires and feeds the soul. From the heart of our bakery-restaurants - the communal table - to our surrounding neighborhoods, we’re proud to be part of the fabric of our communities.

We happily support a number of local organizations and causes and welcome your request. While we do our very best to contribute to as many causes as we can, due to the large number of requests, we cannot accommodate them all.

K-12 Schools & Universities

Youth Community or Educational Groups

Community Groups

Hunger Relief

Animal Welfare

Arts & Culture


Requests must be received at least 8 weeks prior to the event/donation date in order to be considered. Your event or organization must be in a community where we are located. Please reach out to your local restaurant about in-kind donations. Find a Le Pain Quotidien Near You
