Pret’s two most popular sandwiches will support positions for 50 people fleeing the war in Ukraine this month.

For every Chicken Caesar Bacon or Posh Cheddar and Pickle baguette bought during April, 20p will go to The Pret Foundation, Pret’s charitable partner.

In addition, 10p for every soup purchased will continue to be donated.

Pret plans to raise over £100k in April in total to support new employees who have experienced hardship.

Ehiz Ufuah, a TikTok star with 10 million followers has called the campaign a “win-win”.

He said: “We see people having a better life and making things better for themselves and at the same time you get a crunchy, crispy baguette.”

He said: “Having lived in emergency accommodation with my mum, without a home, I know how real this problem is.

“I’m proud to be working with Pret to highlight the rise in poverty and homelessness in the UK and encourage everyone to learn more about the problem and do what you can to help.”

Seventy-five roles will be given to people needing a second chance through The Pret Foundation’s Rising Stars programme over the next 12 months.

Fifty additional roles will be given to Ukrainian refugees as part of Pret’s Ukrainian Employment Programme.

It gives people an opportunity to work at Pret A Manger and rebuild their life.

From training and travel to weekly support groups, these new Rising Stars will get everything they need to work at Pret.

“End it though as soon as that month is up.”
