What we're about

Want to take direct action to help the East Bay's unsheltered population?

Come help us cook fresh, healthy burritos and deliver them directly to encampments around Oakland.

Get to know your neighbors and have fun while making a tangible positive impact on our community members who don't currently have homes.

We also hand out water, fresh fruit and dog food. Feel free to bring your own donations!

This is a family friendly event and children are encouraged to join in and see how easy it is to help one another out. We all deserve shelter, food, water, dignity and love.
