A part of contribution from this event will be provided through UST Global Foundation to build a computer lab for the children of the school.
Like previous years this year too, Yummy Aid managed to draw attention of all the USsociates. The event saw huge participation in the contest as well as from the USsociates who wanted to pamper their taste buds. The judges had a great time testing culinary skills of the participants and a tough time judging their dish. NowU organizes Yummy Aid every year and stalls are set up where teams of participants display the dishes they prepare. The preparations are then open for judgment and forÂ all to relish them. Every year the proceeds go towards social cause. Overwhelmed by the involvement of USsociates for the noble cause Ms. Hema Menon, India Head, NowU, UST Global said, â€œ Every year we organize this, one of the most popular fests of UST Global, and we are delightfully surprised each year by the increase in the number of participants. This is the time when the IT experts also get to show off about their hidden culinary skills and everyone gets to have a taste of it! The best part of the celebrations is that proceeds from this eventÂ are contributed towards noble causes. This makes our celebrations complete and gives us a sense of contentmentâ€
