The Burrito Project is a grassroots, non-profit, community activity. Initially started Los Angeles, chapters all over the world meet once a week to distribute free food to the hungry. Typically the food is delivered by bicycle, and if possible the food comes from salvaged or donated sources. But since the ingredients aren’t expensive, it’s not entirely necessary.

Many people saw the documentary (above) at the 2007 Bicycle Film Festival, which follows L.A. Burrito Project cyclists. Even more people learned about the project thanks to the MySpace Impact Award last year, which garnered the group $10,000 and promotional consideration on MySpace. Chapters continue to pop up all the time, and interested parties are encouraged to start their own. Visit www.myspace.com/burritoproject for more information.

    This is hilarious because I work for a restaurant called Burrito-Ville and we deliver food on bikes. I wish we could do something cool like this, but the owner would have a cow…
