70,000 and Counting!

Our 70K burrito was passed out to Daniel Scott on our 198th consecutive Sunday of serving the homeless community in downtown San Diego.

This photo here gives you an idea of how busy Long Island Mike’s becomes on any given Sunday. With two tables working assembly lines to stack, fill, and roll burritos, as well as people working in the kitchen to crack and cook over 1500 hundred eggs, it is amazing to think that we are able to prepare close to 700 burritos in an hour’s time. Not to mention, that fifty pounds of dog food is bagged and fresh snacks are prepared for Kidz Korner. It is a crazy, busy sort of energy that happens every Sunday morning at Burrito Boyz.

Hot Sauce! Get Your Hot Sauce!

Where else on the streets of San Diego can you get a better burrito with hot sauce? The people we serve each Sunday are most thankful for their hot burrito and often comment on how tasty they are. Every dollar donated goes to the ingredients that make up our burritos. They are filled with at least two scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, and lots of cheese. They are rolled with love and handed out with compassion and dignity.

Thanks to Mike May, who donates his pizza parlor, Long Island Mike’s Pizza www.longislandmikespizza.com,where we scramble and roll burritos each Sunday, we are able to offer hot burritos. Once the burritos are rolled, they are placed in the pizza oven. When our burritos are unwrapped downtown they are piping hot and delicious. After a volunteer suggested our burritos would be even better with hot sauce, hot sauce was added to the distrubution line. We go through about three to four bottles each Sunday. In this photo regular volunteers, Darren and Nate, compete to see who pours the most hot sauce.

Many Thanks to Mike May

Many, many thanks to Mike May, owner of Long Island Mike’s Pizza http://longislandmikespizza.com, who continues to be one of the Burrito Boyz biggest supporters. Every Sunday morning his kitchen is filled with Burrito Boyz volunteers, who scramble eggs and man the pizza ovens. His dining area is turned into an assembly line, where you can find up to twenty-plus volunteers, stuffing and rolling some 600 hundred burritos and bagging fifty pounds of dog food. It is a busy and happening spot early in the morning hours. What the Burrito Boyz accomplish could not be done without Mike’s generous support.

Mike also hosts the annual volunteer party when his employees help everyone make individual pizzas. Again, Mike opens his kitchen and offers all the ingredients to create over-the-top pizzas. If you are ever in the Tierrasanta area, stop by Long Island Mike’s Pizza, enjoy a slice, and congratulate Mike on being a wonderful humanitarian.
