If you use cable like romex for the feeds, you need to carry an equipment ground in each cable. If you run the feeds in conduit, you size the equipment ground (only one is required) for the largest circuit breaker. All simply get tied together and bonded to the control panel.

No, there are only 2 wires coming out of the breaker. The other wire gets tied in the box. It only takes 1 ground wire to the control box for a proper ground.
