St. Louis area diners can participate in Panera's "pay-what-you-want" program, no matter which Bread Company restaurant they visit.

Three years after launching the first of five pay-what-you-want cafes, the St. Louis County-based chain will begin offering one pay-what-you-want dish in each of it's 48 restaurants. The experimental "Meal of Shared Responsibility" is Turkey Chili in a Bread Bowl.

The suggested price is $5.89, including tax. When someone pays more than that, the extra amount goes to cover the cost for customers who can't pay full price and to St. Louis-area hunger initiatives.

The new program begins Wednesday.
