The sandwich chain will be opening a store in Orpington on Thursday
Sandwich shop chain Pret a Manger is searching for Bromley charities to donate food, as it prepares to open the doors on its new Orpington store this week.
The shop is set to open in the Nugent Shopping Centre on Thursday, and has created 21 jobs for the area.
Led by general manager Christina Jorge Ramirez, who has worked at Pret for 10 years, the shop will be serving up its menu of sandwiches, snacks and hot food along with hot and cold drinks.
Now the store is looking for charities to give its leftover food at the end of each day.
Juanita Cracchiolo, Pret Foundation Trust project manager, explained: “As part of Pret’s commitment to help alleviate the pressures of homelessness in the UK, our shop is very proud to be partnering with St Christopher Church, where we will be donating unsold food at the end of each day.
“We are looking for more local charities to support through food donations each night and would love to be contacted by any organisations who feel they could benefit from collecting fresh, unsold food from us in the evenings.”
