Our Work with Brotherhood/Sisterhood Sol 

On November 5, Joselina and Amy went to the Brotherhood/Sisterhood Sol program and taught a workshop based on Veganism, their individual journey, Veggie Mijas and the process of the collective, and also cooked some guacamole with chips and chocolate banana desserts for the students! In total, the workshop was about 2 hours and students had questions about food justice and the process with plant-based food. This is all so important to Veggie Mijas' mission because VM believes that food justice really starts with the youth!
