Nearly 1 in 4 Rhode Island households are food insecure.


About 40% of consumable food is being thrown out.


That’s where Rescuing Leftover Cuisine steps in. 


Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that bridges the gap between available food and those who need it through our network of volunteer “Rescuers” using our food rescue app!

Whether you are 9 or 99, driving on 2 or 4 wheels, you can volunteer with RLC Rhode Island (RLCRI)! An average Rescue Event takes about one hour to pick up surplus food or meals prepared specifically for donation from businesses and deliver them to designated recipients. Food Donors include restaurants, hotels, schools, caterers, businesses who host catered events, and others. Recipients include shelters, soup kitchens and other human service agencies who freely serve any person suffering from homelessness, hunger or food insecurity; and eligible households in partnership with local schools and organizations.
