We believe that excess food marks a new beginning, not an end.

Every day in Massachusetts, RLC volunteer "Rescuers" pick up surplus food that would have otherwise been discarded from businesses, and deliver it to organizations that provide food assistance to people experiencing homelessness, hunger and food insecurity. In addition to excess food, we are crafting and distributing fully prepared, culturally diverse, nutritious and enjoyable meals for children, adults, veterans and seniors who otherwise may not have access to them. RLC Massachusetts (RLCMA) is proud to have rescued OVER HALF A MILLION MEALS since 2016, thanks to our food donor partners, recipients and Rescuers.

OUR PROGRESS SINCE 2016:
648K+ pounds of food rescued
540K+ meals provided
183K+ CO2 lbs. prevented
12.8K+ Food Rescues
130+ Food Donors
120+ Recipient Organizations
375 Recipient Homes
600+ RLCMA RESCUERS

OUR OBJECTIVES - $30,000 raised will support:

1. FREE & FLEXIBLE FOOD RESCUES: Due to the pandemic, RLC Massachusetts (RLCMA) has waived fees for businesses who have excess food to donate but cannot afford pickups, with no minimum size requirement to warrant a pickup. We aim to continue our no-fee model as needed. Doing so will encourage existing partners to continue donating food, incentivize businesses who have not yet partnered with us, and support local eateries while building the resiliency of Massachusetts’ food system, making food rescue common-practice.

2. OUTREACH: We aim to broaden our Food Donor, Recipient and Rescuer partnerships to increase food rescues and redistribution in Greater Boston, Bristol County, Cape Cod, MetroWest, Middlesex County, North Shore, South Shore.

3. BREAKTIME: We have partnered with Breaktime, a Boston-based transitional employment program for young adults experiencing homelessness, to provide a unique opportunity for their associates to learn valuable professional & personal skills to help break the cycle of homelessness while furthering our mission via our Paid Rescuer and Outreach Programs.

4. SOS! (SERVING OUR…Students...Service agency clients...Service people...Seniors): Continuation of our COVID-19 initiative that delivers multicultural Prepared Meals from local restaurants and The Friday Night Supper Program to low-income households and HSAs, in partnership with Boston Public Schools, Boston Healthcare for the Homeless Program and others.
