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

Nearly every day in Rhode Island, RLC volunteer "Rescuers" pick up 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 homelessness, hunger or food insecurity. RLC Rhode Island (RLCRI) is proud to have rescued OVER 7,300 MEALS SINCE LAUNCHING MARCH 17, 2021, thanks to our food donor partners, recipients and Rescuers!

OUR OBJECTIVES - $10,000 raised will support:

FREE & FLEXIBLE FOOD RESCUE: Due to the pandemic, we have 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 Rhode Island's food system, making food rescue common-practice.

OUTREACH: We aim to broaden our Food Donor, Recipient and Rescuer partnerships to increase food rescues and redistribution throughout Rhode Island. This includes hiring an associate from 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.

TECHNOLOGY: We aim to streamline and enhance the volunteer, food donor and food recipient experience via our web-based food rescue app; and increase RLC’s impact per dollar earned while decreasing manual operational costs to make food recovery more pliable, efficient and sustainable over time.
