Rescue Good Food from Becoming Waste


Rescue Good Food from Becoming Waste

Rescue food before it's tossed in the trash! Transport your treasures on foot from the Proper food store in the financial district to the New York City Rescue Mission. You'll need to be on your feet or walking for 1 hour, carrying 10 to 20 lbs. of rescued food.



The mission of Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is to become the world’s most widely used solution for companies and individuals to eliminate food waste in their communities, making food rescue sustainable and universal, and food hunger a thing of the past.
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine serves food insecure people in the NYC area by providing meals to homeless shelters. RLC also serves restaurants by giving them a way to reduce their food waste.
