Operation Fresh Express (OFE)

In 2013, over 707,000 pounds of additional food was provided to over 9,200 needy households through Operation Fresh Express (OFE). 2,600 were children and 1,000 were seniors.  Without OFE, much of this nutritious food would be discarded due to lack of refrigeration capacity. Each week, groups and individuals sponsor OFE distributions where from 20,000 to 25,000 pounds of perishable food (frozen, dairy products, and fresh produce) is directly distributed to needy families by WCFB staff and volunteers at sites throughout Westmoreland County. Sponsorship is $400.

OFE distributions are held Monday-Thursday once a week.  If you would like to volunteer at or sponsor an OFE, please contact Clarissa at 724.468.8660 ext. 33 or e-mail her: clarissa@westmorelandfoodbank.org.
