CITY PLAYERS VISIT PRASHAD FOR GREEN FOOTBALL WEEKEND

1 February 2024

City's Bobby Pointon and Ciarán Kelly took a trip to local vegetarian restaurant Prashad to help celebrate Green Football Weekend. 

The annual campaign aims to highlight work done in local communities across football to help create a greener planet through sustainability efforts, and this year takes place between February 2 and 5. 

The Bantams' focus for 2024, in conjunction with the Bradford City Community Foundation, is on food, following the introduction of the Penny Appeal free food initiative earlier this month, which works to limit food wastage on home matchdays

Visiting Prashad, a Drighlington-based Michelin Star South Indian and Gujarati vegetarian restaurant, both Pointon and Kelly learned about how dishes are cooked and served, and the unique nature behind the running of a vegetarian restaurant. 

They were then given a cooking masterclass by Prashad staff, before trying some of the food they had cooked. 

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!"
