Feeding the Poor
ABOUT THE BURRITO PROJECT
The Burrito Project, is a group of friends who meet monthly to commune with one another and share quality food with the disenfranchised people of downtown Los Angeles, Pasadena & surrounding areas. Purchasing, production, and distribution of all food are a group effort. Each member has a personal connection to the project and to the people we share dinner with every month.
The Burrito Project, is an ever changing experience. We are not the solution or a band-aid to the homeless problem here in Los Angeles County. The Burrito Project, is a starting point, a new perspective on community and personal responsibility. As children we were taught to share, a lesson that has never had any boundaries or social and economic guide lines. Childhood lessons have shaped the way, The Burrito Project, looks at community. As a society we have collectively allowed ourselves to look away when our eyes become uncomfortable with what they see.
