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 (restaurants, bakeries, cafes, etc.) who know they will have excess, wholesome cuisine and link their food donations to a human service agency within their local community. Our dedicated team of trained Lead Rescuers collect that excess food on a set schedule (pickups can be once a week, daily, or anywhere in between) and deliver it to one of RLC's partner human service agencies to help feed our neighbors who can benefit from a good meal!

Who We Need

RLC is seeking a reliable, compassionate leader to pick up food donations and deliver them in their personal vehicle to a human service agency, where the donations will then be distributed to the homeless and food insecure community. There are food pickup opportunities each week and you can take a look at all available opportunities here: https://www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/calendar.
