This week, White Pony Express gave CSO Josh Fryday a tour of their facilities and highlighted the work of dedicated volunteers. The non-profit administers food rescue programs where surplus food is delivered to organizations that serve those in need. “Neighbors Helping Neighbors” is a new program where food donors can signal when they have excess food and a "food runner" volunteer will pick up and deliver it directly to a matching food recipient organization. In 2021, White Pony Express celebrated the milestone of 17 million pounds of food rescued and delivered, and over 700,000 items of clothing, books, and shoes distributed since their founding.Take climate action at home to reduce your waste by growing your own fruits and vegetables and reducing your meat consumption.

Our food insecurity crisis is not one of domestic food production but of food distribution—a staggering 40% is wasted annually. Reaching the marginalized and underprivileged would require little more than a mindful approach to where food goes.

BBC just reported a story about two teens in Texas who started a food rescue program. Following the 2017 hurricane that left underserved Houston communities without food, the teens started #freshhub with 10 classmates, a smartphone app, and a partnership with #secondservings. Since then they’ve mobilized a team of 100 high-school volunteers, saved 15,200 pounds of food from landfill, and served 1,900 Houston residents... Another heartwarming example of "all of us taking care of all of us!"

Dear White Pony Express / friends, I imagine it might interest & please you to note that the United Nations' World Food Program has been awarded the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize. One might say this group seeks (within a different context) the same sorts of goals that you've so successfully & usefully pursued. >
Dear FB friends, check out my newest find.
Is there any other locations to pick food up today? The one in Bay Point isn't going on
If you use an Amazon app on your phone to shop, please go to settings and choose Amazon Smile. This will ensure donations are going to the charity of your choice.
What an amazing Easter. Huge thanks to you n your supporters. Tons of smiles lots of fun thanks to Rach of you. Thu:-)s s first big gathering for my community of Concow, Yankee Hill and Pulga. The kids had tons of fun with all the games, the food was great. The kids loved the baskets, egg hunt, and games. The women loved the jewelry. Thank you so much it was a great day. See comments for more photos
I can’t remember if I said thank you to this amazing organization and the staff who gave me all these donations for this event!!
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!
Hey. You guys gut a page in my charity clubs bulletin
We had such a wonderful visit from five people from White Pony Express this morning talking to us about the fire victims. There are soooo many that still need food and basic necessities When it’s out of the main stream media we don’t always know that people are still in need But White Pony Express does and has not let up in their support and continued food supply to them Thank you Danie, Patti, Judith, Jerry and Pam for coming to our meeting and sharing not only your personal stories about the food distribution and contact with the people but the education on how much you all do in the organization. Our club was happy to be able to contribute a donation to the cause They expect to be doing this for a minimum of 3 more months
White Pony Express is providing critically needed food to campfire survivors. Today we are delivering food to survivors living in FEMA trailers in rolling hills and old orchard RV parks. All of us taking care of all of us.
Thank you White Pony Express for helping me help others!! We helped a lot of people What and honor and blessing to serve the community along with the Richmond Neighborhood Housing Services New York Life African American Market Dream Team Study Group Our AAMU Group gave away somewhere around 200 huge toiletry kits and lots of hugs, handshakes and dance moves. #BeGoodAtLife #NYL50B #VolunteerForGood
