Emergency Pantry Procedures

With the governor’s new guidelines the PHP Burlington Food Pantry will continue with their regular hours: Monday 11-2, Tuesday 3-7, Wednesday 11-2 and Thursday 10-12. Breakfast and lunch for Burlington children on free or reduced lunch will be available Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. A new Drive-up protocol has been put in place.


As a community, we strive to address the needs of those who find themselves in difficult financial circumstances. Please consider volunteering your time to help make our programs a success.

Our purpose is to establish and sustain a community-wide effort to help meet the basic needs of residents of the Town of Burlington, thereby strengthening the community as a whole.

86% of donations collected go directly to support Burlington residents in urgent financial situations.

People Helping People operates solely on donations.
