WPE is one of the largest food rescue programs in California  

In nine years, we have delivered more than 20.5 million pounds of nutritious, fresh food – equivalent to 17 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.
•    Churches and religious groups serving neighbours in need.
