Many in our community cannot afford to feed themselves properly for temporary periods. Children, seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families often do not get enough nutritious food. For some, donated food can free them to pay rent and avoid becoming homeless.

We know there are many food service businesses that would be pleased to donate their excess food if there was a way to deliver it to people in need.

We’ve learned there are many food service organizations and shelters in our county that need more food to serve their clients, but none have enough staff to pick it up from donors.

White Pony Express identifies neighborhood programs in Contra Costa County that need food to feed the less fortunate. White Pony Express picks up the excess food from donors and delivers it quickly to these programs.
