Our Mission: White Pony Express (WPE) is a 501(c)(3) organization that facilitates the recovery and distribution of healthy, perishable food, along with new and like new clothing, toys, and books. WPE works efficiently with our community partners to eliminate hunger and poverty in Contra Costa County by delivering the abundance all around us to those in need. Everything we distribute must be of a high enough quality that we would have it in our own homes or give it to a close loved one.
Who we are: Since its founding in 2013, White Pony Express has grown from an unfunded grass roots organization to become the largest food rescue program in Northern California. In this short time, WPE has rescued and delivered 8,000,000+ pounds of nutritious, fresh food--enough for 7 million meals the hungry would have gone without. Seven days a week from early morning until night, 6,500 pounds of fresh food is delivered from food-donor partners to our 70+ nonprofit partners feeding the hungry: from the largest shelters to small church pantries. All is free.
