Rescuing Leftover Cuisine volunteers are a vital link between our food donors and the community organizations that support our neighbors in need. We have food donors around the city and we need couriers to help us transport food in the areas where they already live and work. Volunteers pick when and where to get involved!
Whether it’s once-a-month, once-a-week, or once-a day we are in need of your help as we seek to provide a reliable food rescue service by fostering community connections to reduce food waste and food insecurity.
Our current opportunities for food pickup are:
Saturdays at 1:30 PM at Bethany Presbyterian Church in the King-Lincoln area
Every 4th Saturday at 11:45 AM at New Horizon Christian Fellowship, starting July 20th in the Deshler Park area
We will pair you with a local donation site that can accept the food on the day of your pickup.
"Their volunteer model is perfect for people with busy schedules... for those who feel like they want to help their community but don't have time. Carving out just 30 minutes to an hour out of your week to rescue food that would be thrown away helps reduce waste, feed the hungry, and save lives. It's that simple. And it's fun!"

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine in Columbus, OH is a local chapter of the national non-profit food rescue organization based in New York City, that provides solutions to prevent excess wholesome cuisine from being wasted. RLC provides services such as food waste consulting, excess food delivery, co-branding services, and tax credit assistance.
After identifying the homeless shelters of a needy community, we proactively find restaurants, hotels, and catering companies with excess food in that vicinity that could help support these disadvantaged communities.
We tackle food waste at its root, aiming to eliminate as much food waste as possible and bringing the remaining excess food to where it is needed most.
Working together, we can ensure that only hunger is left behind!
We'll work with your schedule.
