ABOUT US

CALL Primrose is a non-profit corporation, co-founded over thirty years ago by the United Methodist and First Presbyterian Churches of Burlingame.

  

What began in 1983 as an information and referral service  is now a drop-in food pantry, providing grocery assistance to low income families and individuals. 

  

  • Over the past 30 years, thousands of people in need have come to CALL for assistance.  

  • Funds and food donations are received from private foundations, businesses and service organizations, and through various Peninsula city and county grants.

  • Additional support comes from schools congregations and individuals within our community.

  •  CALL’s administrative costs are kept very low, to ensure that the financial support we receive will go a long way in helping others.

 

CALL is able to assist those in need, due to the efforts of our roster of dedicated volunteers, without whom, we could not help so many in our community. If you would like to volunteer,  please let us know!

OUR PURPOSE

CALL Primrose is a drop in food pantry helping to remove one worry from those most vulnerable in our community by providing free, healthy groceries to low income individuals and families on a weekly basis.

Founded in 1983 as an information and referral resource for those in the community seeking food, shelter and other emergency services, CALL became a drop in food pantry the following year and has been providing much needed emergency food and referral services to members of our community ever since.  

Last year CALL Primrose served over 25,000 individuals in need by directly providing more than 50,000 bags of groceries.

 

We serve low-income families and individuals (including seniors and those who are in transition/homeless).

 

Anyone in need of grocery assistance is welcome!
