Vegan Cooking Lesson

Description of the Event

This is a fundraising event hosted by ESA@UBC. All funds will directly support Yanapana Project's objective to fight malnutrition and hunger in Ecuador. Yanapana will collaborate with clubs at UBC and alumni to host a week-long event through Zoom. Each night, we will host a different event so that the attendees have the opportunity to pick the activity of their interest. These events will allow participation and interactions with the host of the night as well as with other participants. At the end of each day, we will randomly select the winner of a prize that will be awarded on our closing night.
