The Pret Foundation

Supporting food rescue organizations in the US

Every night, after our shops have closed, our shop teams take on a crucial task. They gather our unsold sandwiches and salads and pack them up carefully. Soon after, food rescue organizations pick up all of the food and take it to local shelters, soup kitchens and food banks, feeding thousands of homeless and hungry people.

These nightly donations are possible thanks to our charity partners and The Pret Foundation, our non-profit organization that raises money to support food rescue organizations alleviating hunger and homelessness in the US.

Together, we have donated 700,000 meals annually to feed the hungry in our local communities. Last fall, we donated $1 from every Harvest Salad sold to help feed 4 people in need for a day. With these donations, plus the generous donations we receive in our shop charity boxes throughout the year, we were able to raise $250,000 in 2018 to help feed those who need our support.

Thank you.
