The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a nonprofit food rescue organization dedicated to eliminating both food waste and hunger. Our food rescue events typically last 30 minutes and take place all over Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Queens. We are currently looking for Core Rescuers to join our leadership team of volunteers!
A Core Rescuer is a passionate volunteer who commits to leading 5 food rescue events every week (the same events every week). You will be picking up food from our partner restaurants and companies, and dropping it off at local homeless shelters and soup kitchens to feed those in need.
We will provide training and an unlimited monthly MetroCard for every month of your 4-month commitment.
