The Burrito Project – Feeding the homeless

The Burrito Project is an organization of volunteers that make burritos and then hand them out (along with water) to the homeless in Downtown Los Angeles once a month.

I attended last month and was blessed by my experience. It’s very powerful to give of yourself and be reminded of all the blessings you have. There’s a wide range of wonderful volunteers of different ages and backgrounds and I made many new friends. When we were in downtown LA  passing out the burritos everyone stayed in a big group, there were many head counts and the organizers made sure that everyone was safe.

If you’re in Los Angeles and interested in volunteering I highly recommend joining The Burrito Project. It takes place every third Thursday of the month. If you don’t feel comfortable passing out burritos or don’t want to stay too late because you have to work or have school the next morning you can come, help in the kitchen, make burritos and cleanup.  Volunteers are always needed and welcome for both! If you’re not in LA then you can always make a donation! 😉 Check The Burrito Project‘s website and facebook page for more information!

Here’s the event page for this Thursday, September 19th 7:30pm – 11pm
