FEED BELLIES NOT LANDFILLS WITH RESCUING LEFTOVER CUISINE! Safety remains our top priority. RLC Rhode Island continues to follow COVID-19 Safety Guidelines for all Food Donors, Rescuers and Recipients. This includes zero person-to-person contact, mask-wearing and sanitizing, so we may all be a part of this crucial effort without risking anyone's health and to ensure food safety.
Branch Founded: 2021
Nearly 1 in 4 households in Rhode Island are experiencing food insecurity
Meanwhile, 30-40% of food is thrown out, accounting for the largest category of material occupying municipal landfills. That’s where Rescuing Leftover Cuisine steps in.
RLCRI 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 or 4 wheels, going solo or as a team, you can volunteer as frequently or as seldom as you would like!
