A fundraiser by RLC NJ

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine ("RLC") is a non-profit organization committed to redistributing excess food to feed people experiencing food insecurity. 40% of the food in the US is thrown away even if it’s perfectly good food. Since the onset of the Covid Pandemic, New Jersey has come in at #2 in the US for the most significant increase in childhood food insecurity, and around 2 million people in the state are food insecure.

We partner with food retailer who want to donate their perfectly good surplus food and our invaluable volunteers deliver the donations to nonprofit organizations who service the food insecure in the area. The donations make a big impact on the recipients as it frees up their limited resources and capital for other needs:

"right now our efforts are focused on providing aid to Ukraine given that we (Ukrainian Jersey City) all have family and friends there and are trying to help in any way possible. Even though there is no federal refugee program in place, there are already families here that we are helping.

One of them (a mother with two kids) is living at a hotel to start and understandably the lack of access to the kitchen is tough. There are 4 other families here and more are arriving daily.

Thank you so much [for the food donations]...The families loved everything and were super appreciative of the food, especially fresh salads! "

- Natalia B (Ukrainian Jersey City)

Since the beginning of this year, we have rescued 24,444 lbs. of food. That's over 20,000 meals served!

Your donations will help us continue to scale our operations in response to the existing need. We have already begun to repay our Lead Rescuers (volunteers) for their time and will continue to offer that feature. We would like to onboard a new team member, so that we can service all of the nonprofits in need of food in our area.

We hope you will partner with us by donating to our campaign.

Thank you very much!

RLC NJ is a 501c3 and your donations are tax deductible.
