Burrito Making Party

Time flies when you’re rolling burritos with others!  Join our Burritos Without Borders pilot project to roll about 300 burritos each week. Once the burritos are made, another volunteer delivers them to one of our partners, who then distributes the delicious meals to people who need it.

Weekly burrito making parties on Saturdays, starting at 10 am for 2-3 hours, depending on the number of other volunteers have signed up.  A valid Washington State food worker card is preferred (get one here).  Great service learning opportunity for high school students, or for parents with their children.
