In conjunction with Gloucestershire County Cricket Club, Centerplate; the BRISTOL pavilion's caterers, have been deeply involved in engaging the local community.

Our 'Howzat for Healthy' project, launched at the end of 2013, aimed to promote the importance of home-grown produce, seasonal dishes and a balanced diet to primary school children, and demonstrated how this would fit in with the active lifestyle of a professional cricketer.
For the scheme, our Head Chef Damian Awford-Nash gave cookery demonstrations to 125 pupils from local schools in four days. The children were taught how to make healthy, homemade pizzas and had a bit of fun with the toppings, decorating their pizzas as faces and cats. 

Centerplate also designed a fun, interactive cookbook for all children to take away with them, featuring activities, quizzes and many recipes utilising the produce the children had grown in their school, so they could try what they had learnt at home!

Their produce was then showcased at a summer fete and at the BBC Bristol Food Connections Festival, where Damian conducted more cookery sessions with families. There was also some cricketing activities and an opportunity for the children to meet players for a Q&A session to learn about the balanced diet and healthy lifestyle of a modern athlete
