I started volunteering with RLC over 3 years ago. To say I love this organization is an understatement. Their volunteer model is perfect for people with busy schedules… for those who feel like they want to help their community but don’t have time. Carving out just 30 minutes to an hour out of your week to rescue food that would be thrown away helps reduce waste, feed the hungry, and save lives. It’s that simple. And it’s fun!” -Lauren, Lead Rescuer
