How We Help

How the Burlington Food Bank meets the needs of families in our city.


The Burlington Food Bank not only works with local farmers and accepts fresh produce donations, but we also grow food.


The Burlington Food Bank collects food in many different ways. Our main collection method is through our bins at grocery stores across the city.


The Burlington Food Bank spends roughly $250,000 a year on food to ensure we are able to keep up with demand.



Once food is received from the community and our corporate and food industry partners, it is sorted into roughly 20 different categories.



After food is sorted, it is provided to families at our store and distributed to our partners as needed.

Fresh is best. That's our approach to raising and delivering food.
