Join us on every Tuesday mornings to distribute surplus Pret a Manger food to people in need on the streets of Paris, starting at 9am. Not only will you be doing social good but you can meet new people from all around the world!
At around 9:20am, we deliver the sandwiches, salads and pastries to the people across Paris.
Volunteers go out in groups of two (or alone) to various areas around the center of Paris (rue St. Honoré, Chatelet, Gare St Lazare, Opera, Porte de la Chappele, Gare de Lyon, Austerlitz, Republique, St. Germain, Bastille, Nation). Or, just take the food to the neighbourhood where you live.
- Bring a cooler bag or backpack
- If you jog, or have a bike (or a Velib card), it makes delivery a bit easier. Otherwise everyone walks through the quartiers of Paris with their sandwiches and salads for the homeless.
-If you are more then 20 minutes late (after 9:20am) to the cafe, the group may have left to deliver sandwiches.
***PLEASE BE MINDFUL... of the fact that all our donated food is surplus from 'Pret a Manger' and therefore we are never sure on the quantity of food we will receive before the actual morning of distribution. We apologise in advance if there is limited or NO food available to deliver, it is the nature of the beast #Zerowaste ***
