RLC Massachusetts

Massachusetts residents have experienced the highest projected change among all American states in the rates of both food insecurity and child food insecurity as a direct result of the pandemic. The need for increased food distribution to shelters, HSA’s and low-income households is immediate and pressing. RLCMA has implemented COVID-19 Eligibility & Safety Guidelines for food donors, Rescuers and recipients. Zero person-to-person contact is required so we may all be a part of this crucial effort without risking anyone's health and to ensure food safety.

Nearly 1 in 6 households in Massachusetts are experiencing food insecurity

Meanwhile, about 40% of food is thrown out.

That’s where RLC steps in.


RLCMA bridges the gap between food excess and insecurity

FOOD DONORS: Food safety is our priority. RLC only accepts food donations that are from federally ServSafe certified businesses, schools and organizations.

FOOD RECIPIENTS: Any organization freely serving those in need may sign up for our free service to receive food donations, on a recurring or sporadic basis.

FOOD RESCUERS: Whether you are 9 or 99, on 2 feet or 4 wheels, going solo or as a family or team, you can volunteer as frequently or as seldom as you would like!

Who we work with

We have all found ourselves facing challenges that are incomprehensible. The fear of being without food during these past months has been experienced by many families and senior citizens. Your donations to the City of Everett has relieved this fear to a great degree. Without all of the hard work you do, we wouldn't be able to feed the families in our City. I want to personally thank you for your unwavering commitment to feeding the vulnerable population of the City of Everett. On behalf of my family and I, we are grateful.
