Welcome to the Bakersfield Burrito Project’s place on the Internet!

Every Sunday, come rain or shine, we meet at Wesley United Methodist Church to assemble and distribute burritos and other donated goods to people in need. On every single major holiday, like Thanksgiving and Christmas, we have special handouts of burritos, as well as clothes, toys and anything else donated to help make the holidays a little bit better. Plus, every single Burrito Project anniversary, we try to roll Bakersfield’s Biggest Burrito, and have beaten our record every single time!

Bakersfield Burrito Project doing what we do!

More than anything, we have fun doing what we do! Every Sunday, there are lots of laughs, and joking around. The light attitude comes from knowing we are doing something good for the community without attaching strings to the things we give. We don’t ask our recipients to pray, to sing, or do any other song or dance. We expect nothing in return for the food we hand out.

Keep scrolling down the page! There’s lots going on at Bakersfield Burrito Project there’s always something new.

Feel free to contact us!

Office: 930 Truxtun Avenue, Suite 110, Bakersfield, CA 93301 (Contact us before you stop by – we’re in and out of the office all day, every day!)

A Bit of the Bakersfield Burrito Project Route Today

Centennial High School girls on route today. There was a homeless woman there sleeping on the pavement. Two families were in an apartment complex with no running water. But when the kids – all under 10 – came out to make sure their grandma got fed and had water, the girls got to see a part of humanity few people get to see.

It’s that time of year again! Centennial High School students need to put in hours of community service, and the Bakersfield Burrito Project is always grateful for the help. Welcome to Sarah and Sydney for their cheese grating, mix scooping and burrito rolling skills. Sydney rolled burritos like a pro by the end of the afternoon.

Plus, all the beautiful rice and beans and cheese made for some awesome burritos. And there’s Susan and Mia working that grill getting tortillas warmed up for rolling. Ms. Wanda and her kids were there to make sure everything went smoothly.

It’s another Bakersfield Burrito Project Sunday. Join us for some fun (the Centennial High girls will tell you how much fun grating cheese is), with the bonus of knowing you’re helping the hungry and homeless of Bakersfield.

We love it when Girl Scout Troops come to help assemble burritos for our hungry and homeless friends. It’s always fun teaching folks how to roll a burrito, and getting perfect results! And we’ll add the Troop number once we get our paperwork in order.

Thsnks, ladies! We look forward to everyone coming out again for more burrito fun.

And that's how a perfect burrito is rolled!

And Don’t Let Anyone Tell You Radio Advertising Doesn’t Work

If anyone hasn’t heard our Savage Radio spots, that’s probably because you listen to the wrong kind of radio. Our newest volunteer, who preferrs to remain anonymous, heard about us through KSVG radio. AND it was the newest ad, the catchy (and, perhaps slightly annoying) “Best Burrito” spot. Yay to KSVG radio and the new volunteers you’re bringing to us! Thanks!

We got this under control! Thanks to Susan Chan for prepping and being the left arm of the tortilla warming. She got this.

We wish we could take pictures of the people who were fed today. It’s the end of the month, so resources are scarce for the homeless and hungry. Jason received more hugs from grateful folks happy to receive a bottle of water,  some juice (Thanks, Diane!) and a hot meal.

Dorothy, at the Morocco, went door to door making sure her neighbors were fed. “Hey, baby, the burrito lady is here.” “Thanks, Mama, thanks for knocking on my door. I haven’t eaten in a day.” Now we have a new friend making sure her neighbors get a hot meal. Thank you, Dorothy.
