Welcome To The Burrito Project.
In the News, The Burrito Project was featured in a People.com segment, NBC’s Today.com joined us for a burrito project and Timeout Los Angeles ranked participating in a burrito project as #20 on their “101 things to do in Los Angeles,” their essential guide to the best things to do in LA. We added a Testimonial Page so you can hear from our volunteers about their experience volunteering with, The Burrito Project.
So, what is a burrito project?
The Burrito Project is a group of really cool & groovy people (like YOU) who get together & make burritos. Once the burritos are made, we deliver the burritos along with bottled water (and bonus goodies like toiletry kits, clothing, blankets, etc.) to the homeless in downtown LA (and/or the Pasadena area).
In 2009 this burrito project chapter was born and many organizations and talented people have wanted to help share The Burrito Project message through video. We’ve added a VIDEO Page to our website so you can watch interviews including the latest video from People Magazine and the NBC Today Show and a short interview from TheMaking.org.
There are burrito projects sprouting up around town and across the country. Some deliver their burritos on bicycles, others on foot and some even use a red flyer wagon. Visit a burrito project in your neighborhood. If you’re in the Los Angeles/Pasadena area, come visit us for our large burrito project. If there is no burrito project near you, consider starting one up. We’ll help you get started.
As children we are taught to share. I was raised with the “time, talent & treasure” philosophy. I think it’s important to share the gifts we are graced with to make the world a better place. Yes, one person can make a difference. Imagine what a group of people with a common philosophy can do. The Burrito Project is definitely a TEAM effort. We look forward to working with you.
Is The Burrito Project going to eradicate world hunger and solve homelessness? No, but it will ensure that the people we serve have a warm meal to fill their bellies. We offer our freshly made burritos without judgment. There is no sermon or lecture. Our burritos are served with a smile. =)
If you or your company would like to help support The Burrito Project with volunteers, gifts or donations we welcome your support. We are a nonprofit organization which relies on the generosity of the community.
The best way to understand what the burrito project does is to come experience it for yourself. I suggest you bring a friend to share in the experience with you. We look forward to meeting you. Let’s make the world a brighter place. Be a hero with a burrito!
