Blog:In Support of the Reno Burrito Project
The other day, the Laughing Planet community outreach team delivered 200 tortillas and pounds of beans to the Reno Burrito Project (RBP) to help them in their work:
serving home cooked healthy burritos to some of the homeless in the Reno community. The RBP was founded by Blaize Abuntori, a graduate student in data science and statistics at the University of Nevada, Reno.
At Laughing Planet we have three major pillars: sustainability, community, and health and wellness.
Moving forward & future partnerships
Our outreach team will continue to support the Reno Burrito Project as long as we can, especially amidst a pandemic when more-and-more folks in our community are having a hard time having their basics met, like sustaining affordable housing and having access to a warm meal on any given day. If you'd like to partner up on a community-centric project(s), please don't hesitate to reach out. After all, this partnership between with the Reno Burrito Project started by a friend and volunteer with the RBP asking me one morning a few months ago in-passing if Laughing Planet could do something like this (support the Reno Burrito Project).
Oh yeah, Laughing Planet is still offering its free kids meals during the pandemic. If your child (or you know of one that) is need of a meal, just give Laughing Planet a ring and ask for a kids meal—
no questions asked.
