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!)
Please go to our IndieGoGo campaign and help us get our Burritomobile up and running. Time is running out for us to get it registered before the late fees start piling up.
Carlos Correa from 23 News came out this morning to cover the Centennial High School students working with the Bakersfield Burrito Project for their school project.
After watching Jason with the pancake maker on the grill, the girls wanted to take a turn squirting them and flipping them. They had fun making pancakes for everyone who volunteered today.
It’s week 5 with our Centennial High School students. New students out on the route delivering burritos today, seeing another side of Bakersfield not everyone gets to see.
Taste testing the mix the make sure it's the best free burrito in town.
A hot burrito for you, sir.
Riverwalk Park, making sure everyone has a burrito and a bottle of water
And afterward, everyone got their pick of a pumpkin from Wesley United Methodist Church's pumpkin patch

We also challenge all the businesses out in burrito-land to follow Councilwoman Perez in her financial support. End of the year donations are tax-deductible. Contact us with your donations. 661-412-2568
We love our Centennial High School students that come to volunteer for their community service project. Even if the dang web master confused Alyssa with Sidney. We fired him, then immediately hired him back. Because we’re the Bakersfield Burrito Project: we can do that.
Look! Steve is back, making sure the high schoolers are doing what they should.
Hey webmaster: Alyssa is in the dark blue t-shirt, leaning on the counter. Sidney is in light blue t-shirt facing away from the camera. Get it right!
Matt drives the route, finding our hungry and homeless friends.
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.
Centennial High School students were out slinging burritos to our homeless and hungry friends. We thank them for the extra effort they put in this Sunday.
This is not a staged photo. You can't tell from Sidney's laughing.
Here's a better picture of Alyssa and Paul. Also, totally not staged.
Heading out to Central Park.
Centennial High girls heading out to hand water to folks.
BPD making sure things are safe in the park.
All that "homeless problem" in Central Park.
Making sure kids get plenty of food and water.
Centennial High School students are at it again! Rolling those burritos and later going out on our route delivering.
Not only did we have lots more Centennial High School students reporting for duty, Ernie and his daughter were here to help out. Rolling burritos with a quickness.
Here's Jason, depressurizing the cooker, exactly how the instructions say NOT to do it.
