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 (restaurants, bakeries etc) and businesses who order catering (offices, production companies, etc) who know they will have excess, wholesome cuisine and link their food donations to a nonprofit partner within their local community. Our dedicated team of 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 partners to help feed our neighbors who can benefit from a good meal!

Who We Need

YOU!!

RLC is currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Lead Rescuer and lead food rescue events to ensure all food donations are rescued!

Each event is an hour or less and we are specifically looking for a volunteer for Monday mornings, but there are also other food rescue events, most days of the week.
