Engineers With Appetites

Each year ESS holds its biggest fundraiser where students, professors, and professionals can come together. Featuring new keynote speakers and a great meal each year.


Burritos Without Borders

The Engineering for a Sustainable Society clubs annual fundraiser called "Burritos Without Borders" brings delicous burritos to students every fall. On average we sell nearly 300 burritos, all while raising over $900 for our projects around the world. In the past 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 flood into Nifkin Lounge, 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 have also been able to donate our extra beans to a local homeless shelter! Because of all of the wonderful ESS members, it was a great success! Look for us again next year!

Past Sponsors have included: The Mission Restaurant, Alto Cinco, Moe's Southwest Grill, Don Juan Cafe, Steve's Cantina, Boom Boom Mex Mex, and Price Chopper.
