Two children sharing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

When is a sandwich more than a sandwich?

When that sandwich is an expression of love, a humble gift, a delicious moment of sharing and connection that brings together parents and children, friends and family, and neighbors and their communities.

That’s the idea at the heart of Sara Lee, and the reason for everything we do:

To Feed the Soul of the American Family with Daily Acts of Love

From Day 1, sharing love has been Sara Lee’s purpose. Our founder, Charles Lubin, named his bakery after his 8-year-old daughter, Sara Lee, to reflect his personal commitment to create delicious, high-quality food for families like his. He believed that when parents and their children take time to share good food together, it can change everyone’s day––even their lives.

Today, you can taste our founder’s commitment in every soft delicious loaf and every loving slice. And you can see our real-world commitment to spread love and support beyond moments of personal sharing, to sharing with the communities in which we live and work.
By 2025, we’ll donate $1 million to help US Hunger create moments of love at home, all across the country. Our partnership with US Hunger is made possible by you, every time you choose Sara Lee for your meals, snacks and creative recipes.

So look for the name that’s meant love for more than 70 years, Sara Lee, and Give a Little Sara Lee Love to the people in your life.
