A fundraiser by RLC NJ

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine ("RLC") is a non-profit organization whose mission is to reduce food waste and food insecurity. 40% of the food in the US is thrown away even if it’s perfectly good food. 1 in 7 Americans are food insecure, and in Hudson County alone, more than 70,000 residents experience food poverty.

RLC New Jersey bridges the gap between surplus food needing a home and the individuals and families who can benefit from food assistance. We partner with food retailers who want to donate their perfectly good surplus food and our invaluable volunteers deliver the donations to human service agencies in the area. The donations make a big impact on the recipients as it frees up their limited resources and capital for other needs:

"The working women of York Street Project's St. Mary's Residence are doing everything society asks but are still living far below the poverty level. It means having to choose between paying bills or having something to eat. York Street Project and RLC are a perfect match: their weekly delivery of rescued Panera donations subsidizes our residents’ food budget allowing them to stretch their dollar to use in other ways."
- Nelly Tabora (York Street Project)

Since the launch of RLC New Jersey in early March, we have delivered over 8,000 meals to 8+ human service agencies, expanded our operations into Hoboken (with the plan to expand further) and installed our inaugural Associate Board.

Your donations will help us continue to scale our operations and solidify our presence in New Jersey, especially as we work toward expanding into other cities.

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.
Please consider corporate matching programs by your employer to extend your impact.
