Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is a nonprofit organization committed to fighting food insecurity and preventing wasted food. We have cultivated a network of dedicated food rescuers who bring food directly from our food donors to nonprofit recipients, letting neighbors help neighbors while reaping the environmental and economic benefits of reducing wasted food. Founded in 2013, our simple, but elegant model has saved over 8 million pounds of food since our inception. Who We AreRescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 non-profit that redistributes excess food to people experiencing food insecurity. What We DoWe partner with licensed food vendors (restaurants, bakeries, etc) and businesses who order catering (offices, production companies, etc.) who know they will have excess, wholesome cuisine and link their food donations to a human service agency within their local community. Our dedicated team of Lead Rescuers collect that excess food on a set schedule (pickups can be once a week, daily, or anywhere in between) and deliver it to one of RLC's partner human service agencies to help feed our neighbors who can benefit from a good meal! Who We NeedYOU!! No minimum time commitment is required - you may sign up to volunteer sporadically or on a recurring basis. Documentation for proof of volunteering is available upon request. RLC is currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Lead Rescuer and lead food rescue events. Pick up food donations and deliver them to a human service agency, where the donations will then be distributed to the homeless and food insecure community.Each event is an hour or less.
