Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Rhode Island

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Who we are:
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that links available food to organizations who need it at no cost to the recipient through our network of volunteer "Rescuers" and our food rescue app. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Massachusetts has rescued over half a million pounds of food. Now RLC is crossing the state line and preparing to launch Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Rhode Island (RLCRI). We are seeking a dedicated, passionate intern who is committed to social, environmental and local action. This is an opportunity to develop valuable new skills while making a real and sustainable impact in Rhode Island.

What you’ll do:
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Rhode Island is seeking a fundraising intern to assist in reaching out to different companies and individuals for sponsorships, planning a fundraising campaign and help applying for grants. You will be working primarily with our volunteer Fundraising Committee.


  • Encourage fundraising and corporate sponsorships
  • Initiate creative fundraising mediums
  • Plan a fundraising campaign for social media
  • Research and write grant proposals to submit before deadline
  • Coordinate with existing food donor partners and supporters for fundraising campaigns on behalf of their business supporting both their business and RLC

Preferred Skills & Qualifications:

  • Passionate about preventing wasted food; providing Food Justice for homeless and low-income people; and preserving the environment.
  • Strong organizational, oral and written communication skills
  • Proficient computer skills, including Microsoft Office Suite (Word, PowerPoint, and Excel), Google drive, docs & forms and Salesforce
  • Ability to meet deadlines, prioritize, and work independently without supervision

Although this is technically an unpaid internship, we are happy to offer a reimbursement of 5% of money raised (by you) to fund your internship. Interns are expected to work about 4-6 hours per week (TBD based on your schedule flexibility). Intern will collaborate with Dana Siles, RLC New England Coordinator. RLCRI is happy to provide any documentation needed for students to receive internship credit for their university/college program.

Please email resume and 1-page cover letter directly from your email address (not via this web site) to Dana@RescuingLeftoverCuisine.org

Mission Statement

Nearly 1 in 4 Rhode Island households are food insecure. About 40% of consumable food is being thrown out. That’s where Rescuing Leftover Cuisine steps in.


Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that bridges the gap between available food and those who need it through our network of volunteer "Rescuers" using our food rescue app!

Whether you are 9 or 99, you can volunteer with RLC Rhode Island (RLCRI)! An average Rescue Event takes about one hour to pick up surplus food or meals prepared specifically for donation from businesses and deliver them to designated recipients. Food Donors include restaurants, hotels, schools, caterers, businesses who host catered events, and others. Recipients include shelters, soup kitchens and other human service agencies who freely serve any person suffering from homelessness, hunger or food insecurity; and eligible households in partnership with local schools and organizations.

No minimum time commitment is required, and documentation for proof of volunteering is available upon request. Guidelines are in place to ensure zero person-to-person contact and you will not need to enter any buildings.
