At the end of everyday it donates its unsold fresh food to local charities supporting the homeless.

Tarah Thacoor, manager of the new Pret in Salisbury, said the food would be donated to both Alabaré Christian Care and Support and Morning Star.

She said:

We are thrilled to be opening a shop in Salisbury for the first time and to start getting to know our new customers and local community – beginning with our big celebrations over the first weekend of September.

We’re also looking forward to supporting the hard work of two fantastic loyal charities. It makes us proud to know that the food we’re hand-making fresh in the shop each day, will not only be enjoyed by customers, but will also be donated to a very worthwhile place once our shop is closed for the evening.

Alabaré provide homes, drop-in centres and support services for people who are homeless or at danger of becoming homeless. Morning Star will be distributing the donations during their three-day-a-week Banquet Run.

Pret A Manger will open from 7am to 6pm, Monday to Friday, and from 8am to 6pm, Saturday and Sunday.
