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 6 million pounds of food with an average of over 200% growth year over year.


We’re looking for a part-time Human Resources Coordinator to join our small, founder-led team and continue our impressive growth trajectory, working 20 hours per week. This role involves developing and maintaining HR systems, providing counseling on policies and procedures, and managing all hiring and onboarding practices. 


Specific responsibilities include:

  • Maintain employee records and process payroll according to policy and legal requirements 
  • Review employment and working conditions to ensure legal compliance
  • Manage all employee/employer relations including disciplinary and grievance issues
  • Formalize internal human resources processes and policies
  • Pick up the mail from the office’s mail room in the Financial District of Manhattan weekly and forward to appropriate RLC staff members
  • Conduct all hiring and onboarding practices including preparing job descriptions, posting job and internship roles on appropriate mediums, creating and collecting employment and internship agreements, and setting up new employees on all relevant platforms


The ideal candidate for this role is/has:

  • Proven experience as Human Resources Coordinator or relevant role
  • Excellent knowledge of human resources functions
  • Understanding of labor laws and disciplinary procedures
  • An open, clear communicator that proactively provides and seeks updates
  • Highly attentive to detail and process-oriented
  • Familiar with ADP and Salesforce 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.
