Good Food with Evan Kleiman: The LA Burrito Project
Since reading about food pantries and shelters struggling with the rising food costs, we’ve been struggling with how we might be able to help out.
There’s one man out in California who already knows what he’s going to be doing, and it’s the same thing he and his friends have been doing for the past 10 years: handing out home-made burritos to homeless people, hungry people, and pretty much anyone who wants one!
On this past week’s episode of Good Food, Even Kleiman interviews the LA Burrito Guy to get the scoop.
The basic burrito from the Burrito Project consists of beans, rice, and salsa wrapped up in a tortilla. Nothing fancy, but this meal delivers a complete protein that’s easy to digest.
The group delivers burritos on the same night each week, following the same route. They’ve developed relationships over the years with the folks in those neighborhoods, even helping a few of them off the streets.
Handing out burritos on your bike is certainly one way to pitch in! As we start to feel the repercussions of high food costs this year, what other ways are you thinking of helping out?
