Bakersfield Burrito Project to begin operations again after navigating legal red tape
Last Updated: 102 days ago
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The Bakersfield Burrito Project is starting again in after tax status and insurance issues stopped their operations, said founder and CEO Belinda Lopez.
BBP is back rolling and handing out burritos to the hungry and homeless.
They have received a liability insurance certificate that they needed to legally operate, Lopez said.
The Wesley United Methodist Church stepped forward to allow BBP the use of their Health Department certified Community Center kitchen in the aid of creating burritos for distribution.
Lopez said they will distribute food every Sunday; "Rain or shine, a burrito every time."
BBP is in the process of receiving its non-profit designation and has registered with the California Board of Charitable Trusts, Lopez said.
Lopez said donated funds go directly to helping the homeless and hungry.
Their first day of operations will be Sunday, at 11:30 a.m.
