RLC Rhode Island

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that links available food to those who need it, at no cost to the recipient, through our network of volunteer "Rescuers." RLC's Massachusetts branch has rescued over a half a million pounds of food. Now RLC has driven over the state line into Little Rhody to do the same. Support hunger relief and diminish wasted food with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Rhode Island, one plate at a time!

Branch Founded: 2021

Nearly 1 in 4 households in Rhode Island are experiencing food insecurity

About 40% of consumable food is being thrown out.

That’s where Rescuing Leftover Cuisine steps in.


RLC RI 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!
