Burrito Project Apr 30, 2010

Burrito Project from Jon Chou on Vimeo.

Check this out. On Saturdays, a group of students help out the Santa Ana homeless population by making burritos and handing them out. Here’s what the Vimeo page has to say:

A group of college students (from UCI and UCR) giving love to the homeless out in Downtown Santa Ana, California by simply handing out burritos and having a conversation. They cook and prepare the burritos on a Saturday then the next day they drive out to Santa Ana with their bikes and ride around the city passing out burritos to the people.

    Im not sure which was first, but there’s a burrito project in los angeles that has been going every wednesday for 4 years (i think they have missed 2 wednesdays in the last 4 years). They have 4 routes and distribute a few hundred burritos each time. pretty cool stuff
