Plant Love This Summer - Le Pain Quotidien US

Fifty years ago, through their beliefs in the power of love, peace and music, 500,000 people at Woodstock changed the way an entire generation viewed the world and their ability to make a difference for good.

We celebrate the same ‘for the people, for the planet’ spirit every day, and we’d like to invite you to plant (noun) love with our new Summer menu and to plant (verb) love with us in your communities. Join the Plant Love movement and make a difference for the planet by coming together in the spirit of cooperation and positivity to help define a generation again.

We are thrilled to serve our Summer menu in our communities. Each dish celebrates the power of plants and the flavors of the season.

Good Karma Watermelon and Feta Salad

This salad is filled with summer ingredients including roasted Portobello mushrooms, quinoa taboule, avocado with mesclun and vinaigrette. This salad will make you feel good inside and out because for every Good Karma Watermelon and Feta Salad purchased, we will be planting a tree with the National Forest Foundation. The National Forest Foundation has a goal of planting 50 million trees by 2023.
