Bringing hope to the streets of Chichester
In November with the winter weather truly upon us in Chichester the Founder of the Four Streets Project Donna Ockenden approached Purchases Restaurant in North Street Chichester for help with providing nutritious, tasty and hot food for the homeless population in Chichester to supplement the sandwiches, salad and fresh fruit supplied daily to the Four Streets Project by Eat in North Street and Pret a Manger in East Street.
Within a week Danny Bullock, Chef and General Manager at Purchases had spoken to Munneries their local fruit and vegetable supplier based in East Wittering . Munneries now supply the kitchens at Purchases with market fresh vegetables and the expert chefs at Purchases turn this into nutritious and warming soup which The Four Streets team deliver each night in large flasks to whoever is sleeping out.
… None of us could imagine living in such difficult circumstances and we are so glad to provide this ongoing support
Tim Vaughan, owner of Purchases Restaurant said ‘As Chichester’s leading restaurant, voted Number 1 on Trip Advisor within our first year we are based right in the heart of Chichester where the Four Streets do such amazing work. We were so pleased to be asked to help the unfortunate people living on the streets in our community.
Danny our chef trained General manager uses local fresh vegetables to ensure maximum taste and most importantly good nutrition in the soup we provide to the homeless community via Four streets. None of us could imagine living in such difficult circumstances and we are so glad to provide this ongoing support.
Donna Ockenden, Founder of the Four Streets Project said ‘We are so grateful for the help provided by Purchases Restaurant in ensuring our homeless community can benefit from warming, delicious and highly nutritious soup on a nightly basis. It is fantastic to have the support of Chichester’s number one restaurant in helping to ensure good nutrition is provided to Chichester’s homeless community.’
