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.

New Volunteer Friendly


Rescuing Leftover Cuisine works to prevent food waste by engaging volunteers to pick up and deliver excess food from restaurants to shelters and food kitchens. New York Cares partners with this organization and others to address hunger in all five boroughs.
