CALL Primrose is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation providing free grocery assistance to low income families and individuals in San Mateo County.
Founded in 1983 as an information and referral hotline for those in need within our community, CALL soon became a drop in location in downtown Burlingame for those seeking emergency assistance.
Our mission is to compassionately address the issues of hunger and food insecurity within our community by providing free, healthy groceries to those in need.
In 2022 CALL Primrose was able to serve over 78,000 individuals in need by directly providing more than 106,000 bags of groceries.
CALL Serves Individuals, Families, Seniors and those who are In Transition/Unhoused
Anyone in need of grocery assistance is welcome!
As an essential service provider, CALL Primrose is remaining open during regular grocery distribution hours:
Monday – Friday from 9:30 am to 2:45 pm.
For the safety of our clients, volunteers and staff we will be distributing outside.
Until further notice, CALL Primrose is not accepting any donations of food or other items.
We greatly appreciate financial donations so that we may continue to support community members in need.
