We Have Rescued and Delivered over

12.6 million pounds of Food!

Starting as an unfunded, grassroots effort by local residents, White Pony Express  has developed into one of the largest Food Rescue and delivery program 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. 

WPE’s mission is to help end hunger and poverty in Contra Costa County by delivering the abundance all around us to those in need. Operating 7 days a week, 364 days per year, our Food Rescue program rescues on average of 6000+ lbs per day of high-quality, largely perishable, surplus food from local grocers, retailers, farmers markets, restaurants, catering companies, test kitchens, and wholesalers. 

This abundance is then sorted and lovingly delivered by our team of volunteers and staff in refrigerated vehicles the same day to dozens of organizations serving those in need.

We deliver to the entire span of Contra Costa County, from the far eastern cities to the far western cities and every community in between. The Food Rescue recipient organizations serve many different populations from shelters and residential facilities, to churches, schools, and community kitchens. 

There is never any charge or fee to anyone receiving what we bring to our partner organizations from any of White Pony Express’ programs.

"Before White Pony my family ate Top Ramon noodles three times a day for the last week of the month. Now we have really good food all month long, and a variety we could not have imagined.”   -- Judy, WPE beneficiary
