Mission Statement

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a not-for-profit food rescuing organization that seeks to stand in the gap between food waste and hunger within the greater Columbus area. RLC is a volunteer-based organization and a registered 501c3. RLC strives to become the leading source for food waste solutions, using methods to curb hunger and make unused food available to all.


Rescuing Leftover Cuisine in Columbus, OH is a local chapter of the national non-profit food rescue organization based in New York City, that provides solutions to prevent excess wholesome cuisine from being wasted. RLC provides services such as food waste consulting, excess food delivery, co-branding services, and tax credit assistance.

After identifying the homeless shelters of a needy community, we proactively find restaurants, hotels, and catering companies with excess food in that vicinity that could help support these disadvantaged communities.

We tackle food waste at its root, aiming to eliminate as much food waste as possible and bringing the remaining excess food to where it is needed most.

Working together, we can ensure that only hunger is left behind!
