Worthing hostel kitchen given five stars

A HOMELESS charity’s hostel has been given another five-star rating for the standard of its kitchen.

Staff and volunteers at Worthing Churches Homeless Projects’ short-term assessment hostel in Byron Road were recently visited by the Environmental Health Agency.

The kitchen was given a five-star food hygiene rating – the highest rating awarded by local authorities acting in accordance with Food Standards Agency guidelines.

The kitchen is manned by staff and volunteers and used by clients on a daily basis.

Volunteers prepare meals for the clients to provide them with a nutritional diet.

Jacqui Monamy, manager at the hostel, Rupert Bacon House, said: “We are over the moon. This could not have been achieved without the dedication of our housekeeper all our volunteers and our staff team. It is a reflection of their hard work and efforts to maintain high standards of food preparation and storage.”
