Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) is a nonprofit organization committed to fighting food insecurity and preventing food waste. We have cultivated a network of dedicated food rescuers who bring food directly from our donors to human service agencies, letting neighbors help neighbors while reaping the environmental and economic benefits of reduced food waste. Founded in 2013, our simple, but elegant model has saved over 5 million pounds of food with an average of over 200% growth year over year.


We’re looking for a full-time VP of Finance to join our small, founder-led team and continue our impressive growth trajectory. This role involves executing the company's financial strategy and managing all financial actions.


Specific responsibilities include:

  • Supervise all finance personnel, including bookkeepers
  • Approve invoices under $2,000 and manage staff running accounts receivable and accounts payable through bill.com 
  • Build budgets and keep the organization on budget with reports to RLC management and Board of Directors 
  • Track all expense tagging and reports using QuickBooks
  • Ensure that the three main financials statements are accurate on a monthly basis 
  • Work with operations staff to identify expenses to be tagged to grants
  • Prepare reliable current and forecasting reports
  • Ensure compliance with the law and company’s policies
  • Manage vendor relationships


The ideal candidate for this role is/has:

  • Proven experience as Controller, Finance Officer or relevant role
  • Excellent knowledge of data analysis and forecasting methods
  • Most comfortable working ahead of the curve and getting things done sooner rather than later
  • Highly attentive to detail
  • Familiar with QuickBooks, GlobalGiving, Benevity, ADP, and comfortable learning to navigate new platforms and databases as needed


You should join RLC because:

  • We’re passionate about food rescue and its potential to eliminate hunger
  • We work hard but we have fun doing it - monthly team-building activities, cooking competitions, and more!
  • We aim high - we’ve grown every year, in terms of both new partners and pounds of food rescued, and we’re projected to continue that growth trend each year moving forward


COVID-19 has had a devastating effect on billions of people across the world and food insecurity within the United States is at an all-time high. Feeding America estimates that food insecurity within the US has increased by approximately 17 million people, making for a painful total of 54 million people who struggle with food insecurity. Our branches across the country are continuing to rescue excess food and deliver it to our partner agencies to help meet this increased need, but the problem is growing every day. Despite the limitations and disastrous impact of COVID-19, we at Rescuing Leftover Cuisine have been working harder than ever to overcome new challenges and ensure our community remains strong and diligent in the fight against food waste and food insecurity.
