Pret donates first batch of Christmas sandwiches to the homeless

To accompany the launch of its festive menu today (7 November), Pret a Manger delivered its first batch of Christmas sandwiches to three of its “longest-standing” homeless charity partners last night (6 November.)

Dubbed ‘Christmas Sandwich Eve,' Pret chefs “made a fresh batch of 180 sandwiches,” which it delivered along with unsold food from its nearby shops to London-based charities The Passage, Olallo House (Saint John of God Hospitaller Services); Poor Servants of the Mother of God Partnership, and Glass Door.

Nicki Fisher, head of the Pret Foundation Trust, said: “We love seeing how much joy the return of our Christmas menu brings to customers each year, and it’s no different for our charity partners and their clients.

“This year, we wanted to celebrate with a few charities we’ve been supporting for many years. It was fantastic to be able to give their clients the first taste of our Christmas sandwiches, and they certainly seemed to hit the spot!

“The Charity Run is such an important part of our business and, thanks to the support of our customers, we’ve donated over 3 million meals already this year.”

Available nationwide from today, 50p from the sale of all three Christmas sandwiches - the classic turkey, veggie and first ever vegan version – will once again be donated to the Pret Foundation Trust to continue the company’s work helping to alleviate homelessness.
