Our October Burrito Project Event – Thursday, October 15th, 2020: (facebook event)


These are interesting times with many businesses encouraging their employees to work from home. Bars and restaurants have been asked to close for several months. Schools have sent their students home for the rest of the year. Places of worship have closed their doors for normal services. We value our volunteers, so we have postponed our events during this Covid-19 quarantine. You can read more here: We hope to be allowed to open again in July and we will keep you posted here and at the link above.

Happy Mother’s Day, Father’s Day & Independence Day! Consider sharing your love for your fellow neighbor by sharing tasty burritos at a local burrito project.

We’re collecting socks, blankets, gloves, jackets & beanies during this winter season! Please help us collect socks so we can distribute them to our neighbors living on the streets of Los Angeles.

In September 2018, Danny Jensen from THRILLIST Los Angeles listed The Burrito Project in his 62 TOTALLY FREE THINGS TO DO IN LA (Who’s counting, but we were #9 on the list).

(We are GUESTS of the Church of the Epiphany & St. Joseph’s Food Bank, so this is generally a 21 & over event. If you would like to participate and you or your guest are under the age of 21, please contact me directly & we can discuss the details. Thank you).


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.


We gather on the THIRD Thursday evening. THIS MONTH we will be in LINCOLN HEIGHTS.

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.

#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.
#4 – When we are done making & wrapping burritos, (and cleaning up the kitchen) we carpool to the “distribution location(s)” in downtown LA & Pasadena area.
#5 – Become a FAN of the “Burrito Project South Pasadena” so you will be informed of cool events going on:

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday the 15th of October. 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!
