The 15th Night Youth Action Council (YAC) has been hosting Burrito Friday every week for the last three years. It all started when the YAC identified Friday evenings as a time when there weren’t any existing meal services available to youth on the streets. The YAC decided they would host a meal service that they could also use as an opportunity to build relationships with street-impacted youth in hopes of connecting them to community resources. Fast forward three years and the YAC has established a thriving network of community volunteers who continue to show up each week to fill our young people’s bellies and hearts with yummy food and love.
