Sheila Dillon visits Celtic Football Club – one of the largest in the world – to find out about a new venture to improve the eating habits of local children. This move reflects the club’s mission, - over a hundred years ago – to feed the poor and homeless of Glasgow’s East End.
Sheila Dillon meets David Stothers, Catering Operations Manager at Celtic FC who explains how they have changed the menu in the supporters’ restaurant and how they plan to extend the scheme.
Sheila talks to Pam Rodway, cheesemaker and moving force behind the Soil Association’s Food for Life campaign who has been called in to help Celtic FC with their new campaign for healthier eating.
Sheila visits Celtic’s No 7 restaurant, where Sunday lunch was being prepared and talks to Celtic’s head chef, Alec Munro.
Sheila also meets Frances Gallagher, who’s an Adviser to Glasgow City Council, responsible for nutrition and a member of the Scottish Executive’s Food and Health Council. Frances Gallagher explains the plans to roll out the scheme to enable local mums to learn to cook in Celtic’s restaurant.
Sheila is joined in the studio by Prue Leith, chair of the School Food Trust, the independent body set up to help the government to improve school meals.
