Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Volunteering

By Rescuing Leftover Cuisine

We provide a platform for volunteers to recover excess food from businesses and transport it to local human service agencies.

This is an ongoing program.
Every day.

Volunteers often help in a variety of ways and at many different times. Currently, we are asking for assistance from people that can call and email potential food donors, with some flexibility.

Ages Young Adult to Senior Adult.

The program serves people at their homes or wherever it is needed or online.

Right now, volunteering can be done from one's own home. In some cases, volunteers that are willing to sometimes transfer food from the donor to the human service agencies in need.
