    Overview

    Looking for volunteers to sign up to pick up food from businesses and deliver to organizations and households experiencing food insecurity in the Cambridge, Greater Boston, and MetroWest areas, at no cost to the recipient. 

    1 in 6 Massachusetts households are food insecure.

    About 40% of consumable food is being thrown out.

    That’s where Rescuing Leftover Cuisine steps in. 

    Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that links available food to those who need it at no cost to the recipient. 

    Whether you are 9 or 99, on 2 feet, 2 wheels or 4 wheels, you can volunteer with RLCMA! An average Rescue Event takes about 40 minutes to pick up surplus food or meals prepared specifically for donation from businesses and deliver them to designated recipients using our Food Rescue App. 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 give food to those in need, and eligible households in partnership with local schools and organizations. 

    No minimum time commitment is required and documentation for proof of volunteering is available upon request. Guidelines are in place to ensure zero person-to-person contact and you will not need to enter any buildings. 

    Hop aboard to volunteer with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Massachusetts! www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/volunteer
