The Program

Since our start in 1987, Freebirds World Burrito has been focused on giving back to those in need, leaving the planet a little bit better than the way we found it, and inspiring positive action. Through Freebirds World Works, we’ve established and continue to maintain programs benefitting local communities via the help of our devoted and passionate Tribe Members. Once called the Community Action Program, Freebirds World Works now represents a comprehensive commitment to social responsibility and operating consciously.


Freebirds World Works , Freebirds World Burrito's charitable arm, is passionately committed to social responsibility and operating with a conscience. We give back to the communities in which we serve and build engaging relationships to provide opportunities for those in need.
