CALL Primrose is a 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.  


Last year, CALL Primrose was able to serve over 27,000 individuals in need by directly providing more than 51,000 bags of groceries. 


CALL Serves Individuals, Families, Seniors and those who are In Transition/Homeless.


Anyone in need of grocery assistance is welcome!
