Bakersfield Burrito Project working for nonprofit status

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — Bakersfield Burrito Project says it has obtained liability insurance and is in the process of receiving its nonprofit designation.

BBP also recently registered with the California Board of Charitable Trusts and established itself to receive large monetary donations and grants from the government, organizers said Wednesday.

The group assembles and distributes burritos and other donated goods to people in need each Sunday and on major holidays.

BBP will give out food 11:30 a.m. Sunday at Wesley United Methodist Church, 1314 N. Oswell St.
