Foundation and BCAFC stars head to Prashad for Green Football Weekend

Ciarán Kelly and Bobby Pointon visited the famous Bradford restaurant for a cooking masterclass for #GreenFootballWeekend.

This year, GFW are focusing on veggie alternatives to meat dishes to help the planet - the boys got stuck in making nutritious and delicious vegetarian meals at the local institution.

See how they got on!

On the visit, Pointon said: "I am grateful to Prashad and Green Football Weekend for organising this event and hosting us today, letting us enjoy some great food while learning how to cook authentic vegetarian Indian dishes.

"I will take what I've learnt home and definitely get cooking with my family."

Kelly added: "A big thanks to the guys at Prashad for letting us get to know a Bradford institution.

"Helping out in the kitchen has given me great insight into the vegetarian world, and that there is a tonne of options and possibilities in vegetarian food that you can use to make nutritious delicious meat substitutes.

"I am glad to be part of today to help spread Green Football Weekend's messages, and show off my cooking skills!"

As part of their GFW efforts, the Foundation is also introducing exciting new vegetarian and vegan options at City Hub, the community space and café next to Valley Parade, for fans to enjoy.

The menu will launch when the Hub opens ahead of the BCAFC fixture vs Wimbledon on Saturday 3rd February, and will remain evergreen going forward.

The Club would like to thank Bobby and Ciarán for taking part in a day that was made enjoyable and welcoming by the Prashad team, who put on a fantastic masterclass.

More on Green Football Weekend:

The future of football is at risk due to the effects of climate change, with 150,000 games already cancelled per year due to pitch flooding. By 2050, a quarter of UK football grounds will be flooded, with one in four teams expecting partial or total stadium flooding each year.

But when fans and clubs come together to take action, football has incredible power to help protect our world. If the UK’s football fans ate one veggie meal a day, it would save as much carbon as taking 5.5 million cars off the road.

By taking part in the Green Football Cup, fans can win exciting prizes including Championship Play-Off tickets, behind-the-scenes tour of Sky Sports, and tickets to Warner Bros. Studio Tour London - The Making of Harry Potter.
