We are 100% 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.
