September 2022 Little x Little Fundraiser:
All Donations up to $50 are matched at 50% by GlobalGiving!
We believe that excess food marks a new beginning, not an end. Every day in Rhode Island, RLC volunteer "Rescuers" pick up quality surplus food that would have otherwise been discarded to deliver to organizations that provide food assistance to people of all ages, religions, cultures & backgrounds experiencing hunger and food insecurity.
OUR PROGRESS AS OF 9.10.22, SINCE LAUNCHING 3.17.21:
1,000K+ Food Rescues
105+ Volunteer Rescuers
33.9K Pounds of Food
28.2K Meals Provided
9.2K CO2 Pounds Prevented
18 Food Donor Business Partners
27 Nonprofit Food Recipient Partners
YOUR DONATION WILL SUPPORT OUR 2022 OBJECTIVES:
1. RESEARCH & OUTREACH: Broaden partnerships to increase food rescue and redistribution in Rhode Island.
2. FREE SERVICE: Continue our no-fee model for businesses that have consumable surplus food to donate but cannot afford pickups for RLC to coordinate and distribute to nearby Nonprofit Partners.
3. PAID RESCUER PROGRAM: Complements our volunteer platform, enhances reliability, and increases our impact — while giving Rescuers the opportunity to cover necessary transportation expenses while earning extra income for their good deeds.
