During COVID-19 we ask that if you are at risk or have someone in your home with a fever or symptoms, please stay home. If you are a new volunteer, please wait to volunteer. We will be taking extra safety precautions and running a smaller crew of regulars. Please RSVP.
We are volunteer-run and we can always use a few more helping hands. We have two volunteer activities each week. We meet every Sunday to make about 500-600 burritos. We meet every Saturday to make 300-350 BBQ tempeh burritos. Meals are distributed to hungry people in the Eugene-Springfield area.
When can I volunteer?
We need volunteers every Saturday and Sunday for Burrito Brigade to help wash, cut, and prep veggies for the burritos as well as help roll and wrap all the burritos.

Where do we distribute meals?
During COVID-19 we have altered our distribution to just include important drops such as Service center on Hwy 99/Dusk to Dawn, White Bird, Family Annex/First Place Family Center, and Network Charter, with that much less hand to hand contact.:
If you know of a service agency open on Saturday or Sunday that would like us to drop off meals, please email us at [email protected]
