Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is excited to tell you that, together, we have officially surpassed our project goal of rescuing 10 million pounds of food! Your support has been key to this achievement by supporting staff, leading the charge on rescues, and helping develop our food rescue web-application to make food rescue efficient and enjoyable for Food Donors, Nonprofit Recipients, and Volunteers alike
To celebrate this accomplishment, we have created a new GlobalGiving project at www.globalgiving.org/projects/feed-people-not-landfills so we can continue the excellent work supported by our GlobalGiving community. If you have a recurring donation, fear not! We will transfer all recurring donations over to our new project page.
RLC's work is especially important this time of year, when families share meals together to celebrate the holidays. Be on the lookout for a new video highlighting the importance of food at the holidays with our Nonprofit Recipient partner, Polo Grounds Towers!
Please consider making a gift to RLC's new project page in honor of your loved ones this holiday season, which will directly impact your community by providing meals to the neighbors who may otherwise go without. After all, nothing spreads love quite like sharing a meal.
Wishing you a very Happy Holiday and a prosperous New Year! We can't wait to see what we can accomplish together in 2023!
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is thrilled to announce that as of October 21st, we have officially surpassed our annual goal of 2 million pounds of food rescued in 2022! You have been instrumental in this achievement by supporting staff, leading the charge on rescues, and helping develop our food rescue web-application to make food rescue efficient and enjoyable for Food Donors, Nonprofit Recipients, and Volunteers alike.
It can be hard to imagine the sheer scale of 2 million pounds of rescued food. What does 2 million pounds look like? 2 million pounds is equivalent to the weight of 80 school buses, 2 Airbus A380 passenger jets, or 6 blue whales. That's a lot of food diverted from landfills!
For RLC, 2 million pounds looks like 1,666,666 meals served to the people who need them, 750,000 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions prevented from landfills, and over 1,500 volunteers making a difference in our community.
Thank you for supporting Rescuing Leftover Cuisine as we push for 2.5 million pounds of rescued food by the end of the year!
We can't believe that 2022 is already coming to a close! This has been a huge year for food rescue and for Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. In May of this year, RLC officially surpassed 8 million pounds of food rescued, and now in September, we have rescued 9 million pounds! Our community partners and supporters have been essential to our growth. As food rescue gains national attention via The Food Donation Improvement Act, we believe that now is the time to make food rescue the norm across all businesses with excess food. Thank you for supporting our mission and our expansion!
