HOW IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Donate your business's excess food in any amount, sporadically or on a set schedule. RLC will
locally distribute it to the organizations providing meals to others.

You would be surprised by how many businesses are eligible to donate their excess food instead of throwing out thousands of pounds of edible food every year.  Food donation is not illegal and is actually encouraged by the government.

DESCRIPTION

Do you run a business? Do you work at a restaurant or in a grocery store? Do you work in an office building or event center that has excess food? Talk to your team about the idea of donating your excess food.
