WPE’s mission is to help end hunger and poverty in Contra Costa County by delivering the abundance all around us to those in need. Operating 7 days a week, 364 days per year, our Food Rescue program rescues on average of 6000+ lbs per day of high-quality, largely perishable, surplus food from local grocers, retailers, farmers markets, restaurants, catering companies, test kitchens, and wholesalers.
