Greetings from the Bakersfield Burrito Project

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!

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!)

We have received a lot of requests for our Volunteer flier from folks within the community. We’ll post the JPG image first, then at the bottom of the post, you can find the PDF. Please feel free to copy and spread through the great wide world. Even if you don’t volunteer with the Bakersfield Burrito Project, volunteer some where. We promise you’ll feel as good as Kianna does when you volunteer.

It’s another Sunday of Bakersfield Burrito Project doing what we do, without fail.

We try to start the morning right, with a pancake breakfast. We need happy volunteers so we have happy burritos!

The mixture is scooped onto warmed tortillas and slid down the assembly line, where the volunteers roll them into the yummy burritos.
Rollin', rollin' rollin'!
Rollin’, rollin’ rollin’!
At the end of the assembly line, they are put on a tray and placed in a medium heat oven to make the burritos stay hot (without blackening the tortillas).

We have to make sure we lots of pictures of our Centennial High students, since they are doing community service for their government class projects.

And once all the burritos are placed in insulated bags, we drive them to the pockets of homeless and hungry we know are in the community.

More donations crammed into the Burritomobile. The Bakersfield community is so generous in helping people in need.

PRESS RELEASE

Bakersfield Burrito Project

930 Truxtun Avenue, Suite 110

Bakersfield, CA 93301

www.bakersfieldburritoproject.org

EVENT: Thanksgiving Breakfast Burrito Community Outreach Event

WHERE: Millcreek Park, 21st and Q Streets

WHEN: November 27th, 10am – Noon

The Bakersfield Burrito Project will be holding it’s Sixth Annual Thanksgiving Community Outreach Event this Thanksgiving morning at 10am at Millcreek Park. Just like every year, we will throw our own spin on Thanksgiving traditions, and hand out our breakfast burritos, as well as setting up stations where there will be clothing, coats, shoes and hygiene kits distributed to the homeless and those in need. All are welcome to attend.

On Tuesday, November 25th, we will be holding a volunteer orientation to organize people wanting to help with this event. We will have three different teams: those that work in the kitchen preparing the breakfast burritos (TEAM A), those that set up and organize the park for the event (TEAM B), and those floating between the two places (TEAM NINJA). Please come out to the volunteer orientation, at Wesley United Methodist Church, on the corner of Niles and Oswell, at 6:30pm, to be scheduled for the Thanksgiving Event.

Please come to either event. Interviews and photos will be available of CEO Belinda, Board Members and volunteers upon request.

Here’s a PDF version of the above information if you like to print it out for further distribution.
