Since the start of the pandemic, RLCMA volunteer Food Rescuers have picked up over 125,000 pounds of food from our food donor partners and delivered it to those in need of donations. This includes over 22,000 meals delivered directly to households struggling with food insecurity; in partnership with Pine Street Inn, St. Francis House, Boston Healthcare for the Homeless, Boston Public Schools, Neighborhood House Charter School and other organizations providing safe housing for domestic violence survivors and assistance for low income residents in treatment for Leukemia.

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us all, but for some families in the Bay State, it’s a crisis. As unemployment skyrockets, families are struggling to pay rent and put food on the table. Human service agencies that provided a safety net have drastically reduced services or shuttered altogether. There’s no public transport to the grocery store, and the local markets are expensive and offer few healthy options. Astonishingly, as the number of people experiencing food insecurity has risen 300% in MA and continues to escalate every day (21% of MA households with children reported in July 2020), 40% of food is being thrown out!

That’s where we come in. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. Our name says it all. We urgently need your support to continue our work.100% of your donation goes towards our efforts to feed the hungry in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
