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/ 

3. You will take attendance, welcome volunteers, and lead them through the rescue event. You will complete a simple donation form at the agency where you donate the food and upload the donation form, along with a picture of the rescued food, via our online portal. A process which takes less than 3 minutes. 

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