What We Do


The Reno Burrito Project was created with the intention to feed and connect with the houseless population of Reno. Beyond food, people need genuine human connection to nourish them, and both of these may be difficult for folks to get on a regular basis. Taking the time to talk to the community creates the opportunity to uplift each other and allows another human being to feel heard, seen, and valued. This outreach is also important in order to discover other potential needs that can be filled.


In addition to providing food and supplies directly to the unsheltered community, we recognize that we also have an important role in empowering others in their work to serve the Reno area. We offer mentorship and, after demonstrated commitment and specific agreements, may offer monetary support to other community projects on their mutual aid efforts. Please contact us if you would like to know more about partnering with Reno Burrito Project.


We are currently seeking the support of an accountant and an attorney who would be willing to provide a few pro-bono consultations and/or services to help us keep Reno Burrito Project running legitimately. We have an official non-profit status, so we are seeking mutually beneficial relationships with public servants in the community. If you are interested in supporting Reno Burrito Project in these ways, or know someone who might be, please email us at: renoburritoproject@gmail.com with the subject line, “Support Services
