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 recipient 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 nonprofit partners to help feed our neighbors who can benefit from a good meal!

Who We Need


No minimum time commitment is required - you may sign up to volunteer sporadically or on a recurring basis. Documentation for proof of volunteering is available upon request.

RLC is currently seeking passionate and committed leaders who are willing to take on the role of Lead Rescuer and lead food rescue events. We are especially looking for volunteers who can pick up food in Lincoln on Wednesday and/or Friday mornings.

Pick up food donations and deliver them to a nonprofit partner, where the donations will then be distributed to the homeless and food insecure community. Each event is an hour or less. As new volunteer opportunities become available they will be added to our online calendar: (select 'Rhode Island' from the drop down menu)
