WHAT IS THE 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 caravan/carpool to downtown Los Angeles and we deliver the burritos along with bottled water to the homeless in downtown LA.

INTERESTED?

We gather on the THIRD Thursday evening. THIS MONTH we will be in South Pasadena at St. Joseph’s Food Bank Kitchen on the corner of Fremont Street & Altura Street (on the North-East Corner). There is ONLY street parking available, so Carpooling is recommended.

We start gathering between 6:30-7:30 so we can prepare the kitchen & start warming up the 850+ tortillas needed for the night. Join us for quesadillas, beverages & conversation.

We officially start the “festivities” about 7:30pm.

BURRITO PROJECT RULES/SUGGESTIONS:
#1 – You MUST have fun, smile & make new friends while making Burritos.
#2 – Please invite OTHER Cool & Groovy People to join in on this fun & worthwhile service project.
#3 – Please bring a $10 donation (or more if you’re feeling EXTRA generous) to help offset the cost of the Burritos Ingredients.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday the 15th of June. I really appreciate your time. (If possible) Please bring your ENERGY, Smile & ANY donation you feel inspired to give). Your donation helps to offset the cost of bottled water, tortillas, salsa & other burrito ingredients (which are not donated).

Please RSVP so I can provide enough beverages. (By SPECIAL REQUEST, we’ll be enjoying Burritos for dinner. YUM!)

We have 2 Phases of The Burrito Project event.

  • Phase I: We prepare the burrito ingredients, assemble and wrap burritos. (7:30pm-8:45pm)
  • Phase II: We walk a predesignated route and deliver the burritos as a group in DTLA. (9:00pm-10:30pm)

You are invited to BOTH phases, but you can also choose to do Phase I or Phase II.

ALSO, remember to wear comfortable shoes (closed toe shoes preferred) and dress appropriately for the weather. Spring is here, the days are warm but the evenings can cool down quickly!

Thank you!
