Our Commitment



At PAUL we take our responsibility to our staff and the communities we serve seriously. We listen to how our teams want to give back, and we support both international and local charities. Our chosen charity for the 0.5p plastic bag levy is Action Against Hunger, helping them to provide the nutrition treatment needed to save the lives of hundreds of seriously malnourished children.

We work with various local charities to ensure that our food left over at the end of the day goes to those who need it. Our own PAUL van collects from several of our London shops and delivers leftover food to the West London Day Centre ( Several other charities collect leftover food directly from our shops, inculding Marylebone Food Cycle, The Order of Malta (, St. Martin in the Fields (, the Notre Dame Refugee Centre (, Inspired Charity (Hampstead) and Let's Feed Brum (Birmingham).    

Sharing our daily bread

In 2016 PAUL joined forces with The Felix Project to help London fight food waste by donating our surplus bread at the end of the day. Our bakers create a delicious Bread Pudding from the surplus bread as well as providing them with full loaves. This is collected daily by the Felix Project volunteers and is now reaching multiple charities serving the homeless, people suffering from mental illness, women in refuges, children, and the elderly.

Last Christmas PAUL donated 50p from each loaf of bread sold during December, raising £15,000 which the Felix Project put towards the purchase of a new delivery van. In June 2017, our CEO volunteered for a lunch shift at Reffetorio Felix to help give a plate of food to those that normally go without - an initiative driven by The Evening Standard and The Felix Project alongside Food For Soul.
