Ever wonder how our food rescue program works through our day to day operations? We simplifying the solutions to complicated problems
Starting as an unfunded, grassroots effort by local residents, White Pony Express has developed into one of the largest food rescue and delivery programs in Northern California in its five years of operation. To date, we have delivered over 9 MILLION pounds of nutritious, fresh food that would otherwise have gone to waste.
We're up before the sun
It all starts at White Pony Express distribution center in Pleasant Hill, CA, where our trucks and vans go out bright and early to rescue and recover food from all over the Bay Area.
Our vehicles make stops at Whole Foods Markets, Imperfect Foods, Trader Joe’s, Chefs to End Hunger, Sprouts, Safeway, Costco, and more!
Together for all of us
Through the circle of generosity and giving
Over the past six years, White Pony Express has grown by listening to the needs of our community and bringing together heads, hands, and hearts, so that all of us together could lift and heal each other. It's our hope this holiday season – and beyond- to extend opportunities to you and yours to connect with your community, and give meaningful gifts to those in need.
Together we can do this
We’ve seen how much Contra Costa cares. Last year, along with donors across the country who support our goal of building a “circle of giving” model that can be replicated, you raised more than $300,000 for the year-end campaign. So this year, to support our skyrocketing growth, requests for services, and to strengthen our operations and sustainability as an organization, we've set a goal of raising $500,000 before December 31st. Our year-end giving campaign will help keep much-needed food and clothing deliveries flowing to the 70+ partner agencies who will be HOME for many this holiday season. Join us to change someone's life and prepare our community for the New Year!
