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!)
Yes, burrito fans, it’s official.
Not only is the Bakersfield Burrito Project a corporation, in existence in perpetuity in the State of California, today we have received our notification that we are now registered as a 501(c)(3) status.
That’s right, burrito fans, we are now a non-profit.
The letter from the IRS giving us our non-profit status
This is good news all the way around. First of all, this means any donation we receive from generous people can be used as a tax write-off. We can also receive large monetary donations from corporations, as well as grants. With this status, this also means we can purchase food from food banks for much lower prices than grocery stores.
Every one here at the Bakersfield Burrito Project is elated with the news! Please spread the word, and lets get this non-profit working for the homeless and hungry in Bakersfield.
Big thanks to Paul Linfesty for the good work on this video. So much better than shaky cell phone in front of the DVR in previous attempts! Thanks so much, Paul!
So awesome to see Dylan Bryant, one of our Centennial High student volunteers, make the news as spokesman for Bakersfield Burrito Project. Good job, Dylan!
Rolling, rolling, rolling…
