WPE is one of the largest food rescue programs in California  

In nine years, we have delivered more than 25 million pounds of nutritious, fresh food – equivalent to 21 million meals – to nearly 100 nonprofit agencies throughout Contra Costa County. We have also redistributed one million items of high-quality clothing and emergency supplies to our neighbors in need.


Who do we partner with?

  • County shelters serving the unhoused and underserved.

  • School pantries and school culinary programs.

  • Homes for foster youth, low-income seniors and families, and people in recovery.

  • Conditional release programs. 

  • Outreach programs for new immigrants and other vulnerable populations.
