Rescuing Leftover Cuisine, Inc. (“RLC”) is a non-profit food rescue organization based in New York City that delivers excess food from food businesses and corporations to local human service agencies such as homeless shelters and soup kitchens to feed the hungry. We have thus far delivered over 4.6 million pounds of food with the lowest cost per delivery in the industry. Our business model is centered around four stages: (1) proactively seek out businesses with leftover food for partnerships, (2) deliver excess, wholesome food directly to local agencies, (3) use our expertise in food rescue to consult each partner different ways to reduce food waste, (4) partners successfully graduate from the RLC food rescue program with reduced food cost and food waste.
