A Typical Thursday Night

UBFM - Des Moines routes can't get out the door without a lot of preparation by a great group of volunteers. Some of the many tasks that must be completed before we can roll:

  • The Capitol Hill Lutheran Burrito Filling Makers show up early to make burrito filling
  • Up to 700 burritos get "squared" (not rolled)
  • A couple hundred PB&J sandwiches get made
  • Fruit, water, toiletries, and other donations are distributed to each route's table
  • Route teams gather, have a safety briefing, share 'Stories from the Streets,' say a prayer, and take a group photo

Here's just a small sampling of some of preparation that goes into getting the bike and car routes rolling:
