School pupils enjoy festive feast with Fuel Zone.
 
Fuel Zones across Glasgow served up a cracker of a festive feast during Christmas lunch week. A traditional Christmas dinner with all the trimmings was served to many of Glasgow’s 70,000 pupils across primary and secondary schools.

More than 500 turkeys, two tons of sprouts and an incredible 950kgs of roast potatoes – not to mention gallons of gravy and thousands of chipolatas - were prepared and scoffed last week for what could be Scotland’s biggest Christmas dinner.

Julia McCreadie, head of Encore and facilities management, said: “The average family Christmas dinner for five people can be challenging enough for any cook. So spare a thought for our hard-working school catering teams each serving hundreds of hungry pupils eager to have their turkey, trimmings and, dare I say it, Brussels sprouts.”
