Burritos Without Borders
Last event Wednesday, October 8th, 2014
Once again this year, the Engineering for a Sustainable Society club ran the third annual fundraiser called "Burritos Without Borders" on October 8th, 2014. This year, we sold nearly 300 burritos, all while raising over $900 for our projects around the world. We were able to receive generous donations from 7 local restaurants: The Mission Restaurant, Alto Cinco, Moe's, Don Juan Cafe, Steve's Cantina, Boom Boom Mex Mex, and Price Chopper. Please show your support to these local businesses! On the days leading up to the fundraiser, dozens of hands were at work organizing, shopping, chopping, preparing, and picking up our 8 different food items to make a delicious burrito.
As students and faculty anxiously flooded into Nifkin Lounge on the 8th, ESS members rolled burritos with smiles on their faces. People joyously chatted through the line, as they watched a fresh burrito be prepared exactly to their liking. Prices ranged from $4 to $7, depending on whether cornbread, chips, and a drink was requested. As of many ESF events, students were asked to bring a plate and lug their mug in order to minimize waste. We were even able to donate our extra beans to a local homeless shelter! Thank you to everyone who helped during the day or behind the scenes. Because of all of the wonderful ESS members, it was a great success! Look for us again next year!
Sponsors include: The Mission Restaurant, Alto Cinco, Moe's Southwest Grill, Don Juan Cafe, Steve's Cantina, Boom Boom Mex Mex, and Price Chopper.
