Rescue Meals for The Hungry
Provided funding 100 meals for the hungry.
Project managed by: Rescuing Leftover Cuisine
Country: United States
Rescue a meal, which would otherwise be thrown away, for disadvantaged communities around the United States. In the US, an estimated 40% of food produced is wasted while 1 in 7 people are food insecure. During the pandemic those number worsened, and 54 million Americans were experienced food insecurity. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine gets volunteers to rescue meals that would otherwise go to waste from restaurants and other food businesses and deliver it to the hungry at homeless shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens.
More About This Project
The U.S. Department of Agriculture defines food insecurity as a lack of consistent access to enough food for an active, healthy life. Americans waste 33 million tons of food every year while 1 in 7 people remain food insecure. Rescuing Leftover Cuisine fills the gap between food insecurity and food waste by rescuing excess food that would otherwise end up in landfills from food businesses and corporations and instead donate it to feed the hungry population at homeless shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens. Rescue a meal with RLC by supporting us to purchase food packaging materials and transporting equipment including aluminium trays and carts for Food Rescues.
