Our Mission

To help eliminate hunger and poverty in Contra Costa County by delivering the abundance all around us to those in need.

The Need

In this county of tremendous abundance scores of thousands are going hungry and even more suffer from inadequate diets due to their poverty. At the same time, food retailers must throw out huge quantities of food for the lack of a system to provide it to those in need. Our founder wanted to use the problem of food waste to solve the problem of hunger.

“Many friends in Contra Costa County can’t afford to feed or clothe themselves properly. And nonprofit organizations and shelters here often don’t have enough resources to serve them. But we've found that many businesses would be pleased to donate their excess food and goods if someone could just pick it up and deliver it. That’s why we created the White Pony Express. We are the connecting link between those with surplus and those in need.”


- Founder, Dr. Carol Weyland Conner
