Burlington Food Pantry Seeking Donation and Volunteers for ‘Stamp Out Hunger’ Drive

By: Rich Hosford

Burlington’s premier charity organization is looking for donation of needed goods and a group of volunteers to help with one of the year’s biggest food drives.

On Saturday, May 11, the National Association of Letter Carriers is conducting their 27th annual Stamp Out Hunger food drive. Any food collected in Burlington will be donated directly to People Helping People’s Burlington Food Pantry. People can leave donations out by their mailbox, in any type of bag, that morning to be picked up by your Letter Carrier.

The most pressing needs for the Burlington Food Pantry at the moment are: Cereal and oatmeal, pasta sauce, Basmati rice, vegetable oil, canned fruit, canned tomatoes, 2 lb. sugar (granulated), canned spinach, beets, potatoes, dish detergent, boxes of tissues, toilet paper (indv. wrapped) and baby wipes.

If you have any questions about donations contact Jane or Cheryl at or 781-270-6625.

With a large amount of donations expected in the food drive, People Helping People is also seeking volunteers to help sort and date check them.

“Volunteers are needed at St. Margaret’s Religious Education Building on Saturday, May 11 from 1:30 to 6 p.m. to sort and date check food donated,” a message from PHP says. “If you are interested in helping and making a difference in your community, contact Judy Walsh at or 617-797-6786.”
