Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Inc


Who We Are

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 non-profit focused on providing a reliable food rescue service by fostering community connections to reduce food waste and food insecurity.

What We Do

We partner with licensed food vendors (offices, restaurants, etc) who know they will have excess, wholesome cuisine and link their food donations to a human service agency within their local community. We then provide volunteer Food Rescuers to collect that excess food on a weekly (sometimes daily!), recurring basis, and walk it to the human service agency to help feed individuals who could benefit from a good meal!

Who We Need


RLC is currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Core Rescuer and lead 5 food rescue events on a weekly, recurring basis! Each event typically lasts around 30-45 minutes, and the average number of volunteers you would be working with is three. As a Core Rescuer, you will use your (R)esourcefulness, (L)eadership, and (C)ommunication skills to ensure that the rescued food arrives at its destination safely while providing a positive and supportive experience for all volunteers assisting you on your event.

If you are able to commit to leading the same 5 food rescue events per week, you will receive compensation of $60.50 on a bi-weekly basis, meaning you will receive the equivalent of an unlimited monthly MetroCard for a month of volunteering! You will also receive a stipend of $8 per event for every event you Lead that is over the 5 event minimum.

Must be 18 years or older.
