Description of the event:
ESN Aveiro organized a Movie Night on the topic of Disabilities, during which we watched the movie "Wonder" (2017), which portrayed the daily life, struggles and successes of a boy with a facial deformity. Instead of charging a ticket, as we usually do, the entrance fee consisted of at least 1 non-perishable food item. These goods were then collected and used during the following edition of Social Cuisine (https://activities.esn.org/content/social-cuisine). We also handed out popcorn to every participant.
In the end, we did a debriefing session where we discussed the movie for a bit and asked the participants what they felt they had learnt.

We also managed to collect enough food to cook a full meal during Social Cuisine.
