delivering burritos to the homeless by bike

You have probably heard of the all-around good effort known as “Food Not Bombs,” but have you heard of “Burrito Project”?

Food Not Bombs groups share “free vegan and vegetarian meals with the hungry in over 1,000 cities around the world to protest war, poverty and the destruction of the environment.” Burrito Project groups do something similar (“handing out bean and rice burritos, or other foods, and bottled water to the homeless”), but some groups seem to be adding (or focusing on) a cool twist.

Burrito Project and Bikes

Burrito Project San Diego and Newsong Burrito Project in Fullerton, CA (and probably others as well) are delivering their burritos by bike and making that a central element of their work.

Bikes are a sustainability ideal on so many fronts — they are perhaps the greenest mode of transportation, are extremely affordable, and they help increase social interaction and build community.

Share and Stimulate Burrito Project’s Work on Facebook

If you like this story and think others should start Burrito Project groups in their areas, share it on the most popular website on the planet, Facebook.

And, of course, you can always start a Burrito Project group in your area. That’s a good way to stimulate action while also taking practical action yourself.
