In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, La Panadería is introducing a limited-time Pink Concha for the month of October. The Pink Concha will be available at all three locations from October 1 – 31, 2021 for $3.50, and $1.00 from each Pink Concha sold will go directly to the Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation. Owners José and David Càceres created the initiative to honor their late mother. (La Panadería, 2021)
“This is a cause very near and dear to our hearts. Our mother is the one who instilled a love of baking within us, so what better way to honor her legacy than by donating proceeds from our Pink Concha to the Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation?” – Jose Cáceres, co-founder of La Panadería.
The Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit (501c3) advocacy organization made up almost entirely of breast cancer survivors. Their mission is to end breast cancer by assisting patients, informing health professionals and policymakers, and expanding knowledge through education and community outreach. Donations help ABCF provide free screening mammograms, education and support services to women & men in need.
To purchase Pink Conchas, visit any of La Panadería’s three locations or order online.
Hoping to share their Mexican heritage with citizens in the U.S., José and David Cáceres opened La Panadería in San Antonio, Texas in 2014. The bakery, which specializes in handmade bread, pan dulce and pastries inspired by Mexico’s Golden Era, or Epoca de Oro, draws influence from French, Italian and American bread making techniques. La Panadería’s unique approach to breadmaking includes a minimum 48-hour fermentation process that results in artisan bread and pastries unlike any other. La Panadería has three locations in San Antonio, Texas.
