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.

In 2017, with the help of our partners, we donated over 800,000 meals to those in need.

This past fall, we donated $1 from every purchase of our Fall Harvest Salad to local food rescue organizations. With those donations, plus the generous donations we receive in our shop charity boxes throughout the year, we raised over $100,000 to feed the hungry.
