Please visit the new page to apply.
Who We Are
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 non-profit that redistributes excess food to people experiencing 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. Our dedicated team of Lead Rescuers collect that excess food on a weekly basis (sometimes daily!) and deliver it in your personal vehicle 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 currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Lead Rescuer and lead food rescue events. Pick up food donations and deliver them to a human service agency, where the donations will then be distributed to the homeless and food insecure community.
Each event is an hour or less. We are specifically looking for someone to help out on Monday afternoons, but as new volunteer opportunities become available they will be added to our online calendar: https://www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/calendar.
How To Get Started
- Create an account on our website: https://www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/volunteer
- Sign up for any event on our calendar (https://www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/calendar) that fits with your schedule
- Read the Lead Rescuer Manual and pass the Lead Rescuer Quiz (available on your RLC website dashboard) to join our leadership team of volunteers as a Lead Rescuer and lead events on your own!
02:00 PM to 02:30 PM
This volunteer shift is available every Monday - sign up for one shift, or as an ongoing volunteer!
- NONE OF THESE TIMES WORK FOR ME, BUT I CAN STILL HELP

The mission of RLC is to redistribute excess food to feed people experiencing food insecurity.
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is a nonprofit organization committed to fighting food insecurity and preventing wasted food. We have cultivated a network of dedicated food rescuers who bring food directly from our food donors to nonprofit recipients, letting neighbors help neighbors while reaping the environmental and economic benefits of reducing wasted food. Founded in 2013, our simple, but elegant model has saved over 8 million pounds of food since our inception.
