THE CHALLENGE

In Contra Costa County, over 116,000 people - more than 1 in 10 of our neighbors -   live below the poverty level. At the same time, an estimated 40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste. People go hungry, not due to scarcity, but because retailers lack a way to distribute surplus food and goods to those in need. 

 

THE SOLUTION

White Pony Express is dedicated to helping eliminate hunger and poverty by delivering the abundance all around us to those in need - with love. We have created a volunteer powered “circle of giving” that can be replicated in other communities. Through our donor and recipient partners, we are reaching more than half of those in need right here at home. 

 
In the end…

Our friends in need move from the margins to the mainstream.

First…

Donors call in or pre- schedule donations of food, clothing, toys & books.
