Rescuing Leftover Cuisine has recently launched operations to help eliminate food insecurity and reduce food waste in Chicagoland. We're hitting the ground running, rescuing food by mobilizing our incredible volunteers to pick up excess food from restaurants and company cafeterias to deliver it to local nonprofits that support local Chicagoland residents facing food insecurity. We're already rescuing hundreds of pounds of food, and are expanding our work to increase that to thousands of pounds of food, and hopefully millions of pounds in the coming years!

Your donation can help us increase capacity through partnership building, operational support, promotion at events across the regions, and much more in order to help us organize more food rescues! Every $20 that we raise funds the rescue of 166 meals and also eliminates over 150 pounds of food waste! That's an incredible amount of impact your donation can have. In addition, if you're donating on July 20th, you can increase your impact even more through the July Bonus Day campaign with will match donations from $100 - $1000!

We appreciate your consideration to support our impactful work to address food insecurity, food waste, and eliminate hunger in the Chicagoland Region! Thank you so much for your consideration.
