Volunteer opportunity description

Rescue food before it's tossed in the trash! Our food rescue events are scheduled to occur on a recurring basis. Whether it's once-a-month, once-a-week, or once-a-day, we are in need of your help as we seek to provide a reliable food rescue service to local shelters, soup kitchens, and other human service agencies in Jersey City. With just an hour of your time, you can help reduce food waste and provide meals to those who need it most in our community. 

All rescue events will take place in Jersey City.



1. You will need to be on your feet or walking for approximately 1 hour (sometimes less), carrying 10 to 20 lbs. of rescued food. 

2. All Volunteers must sign up and be logged into their Volunteer Account to volunteer for a Rescue Event (“Event”). If you don’t already have an account, please create an account by going to the Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (“RLC”) homepage:https://www.rescuingleftovercuisine.org/ 

**If you have access to a utility cart, please bring it to the event to help transport food.**
