Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a nonprofit food rescue organization. We are dedicated to reducing food waste and bringing rescued food to those suffering from hunger or food insecurity.
We are currently looking for volunteers who are looking to fight food waste and end hunger! The duties of a volunteer would be to help deliver excess food that would have otherwise been thrown out to a nearby homeless shelter. You will be guided by a lead rescuer (a person who takes charge of the event) and he/she will give you the information of the event.
You can simply do so by signing up directly on our website at www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/calendar! You will first need to create an account at www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/users/sign_up!
