COME TO THE (FOOD) RESCUE! Volunteer with Rescuing Leftover Cuisine

Rescuing Leftover Cuisine Massachusetts (RLCMA) is a non profit organization that connects available food to those who need it. Our online calendar posts available “Food Rescue Events” for volunteers to sign up to pick up food from businesses and deliver to organizations and households experiencing food insecurity in the Cambridge, Greater Boston and MetroWest areas, at no cost to the recipient. 

RLCMA volunteer “Rescuers” have transported over 400,000 pounds of excess food and meals prepared specifically for donation since 2017. This includes over 130,000 pounds of food since the start of the pandemic and 22,000 prepared meals directly to homes in need of free and healthy meal deliveries. 

The upcoming months will remain critically challenging for those experiencing homelessness and food insecurity. RLCMA needs more Food Rescue Heroes. Volunteering for one hour provides an average of 30 meals. Go solo or as a team, regularly or sporadically, in any size vehicle. ALL AGES WELCOME! Eligibility and safety guidelines have been put in place for a contact-free experience for everyone's safety.

RLCMA can reimburse you for tolls or a cab/Uber/Lyft used during food transport if you don’t have a vehicle in the city of Boston; and a limited number of Paid Rescuer Positions are available.
