Burrito Project SF is the perfect group volunteer activity for coworkers, non-profits, or social clubs! Help give back to your community by making delicious, vegan meals and hand delivering them to people living with hunger or housing insecurity. With a variety of tasks from food preparation to burrito assembly to delivery, we can customize the volunteer experience to work with your team’s size and schedule. Volunteer groups can sponsor the event with a donation to fund all the ingredients and supplies we use at the event.
