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

Up to 40% of food feeds landfills.

Methane Gasses from food in landfills hurts our planet and our health.

Rhode Island’s Central Landfill may fill up by 2040.


RLCRI bridges the gap between food excess and insecurity

WE INVITE NONPROFITS to sign up as RLC Food Recipient Partners, a free service.

WE ENCOURAGE BUSINESSES to partner with RLC to donate their surplus food.

WE INSPIRE VOLUNTEERISM by hosting volunteer opportunities for one-time, sporadic or recurring Rescue Events, morning until night, 365 days a year.

Who we work with

Many families are very happy tonight. The food you delivered went to community families - which they always get excited for. Some people cry with gratitude...You’re doing great work...Thank you, again.
