Burrito Project

Burrito Project (sometimes known as the burrito brigade) is a group of people who have a heart for meeting the basic needs of the homeless in our city. Each Thursday, we meet at 6:30pm to cook and wrap approximately 40-50 burritos. After we have packed away a water bottle for each burrito, we ride together on our bikes towards downtown and we hand them out to the homeless.
It is the many conversations, and the building of relationships with the homeless and with each other that has made this weekly ride special.

If you are interested in being a part of the Burrito Project, we meet each Thursday night at:
269 Obispo Ave (in the backhouse)
Long Beach, CA 90803
If you can only make it for the ride, we leave around 8:00pm on our bikes.
