Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a non-profit food rescue organization, based out of New York City, operating within twelve cities. Their goal is to prevent excess food waste from restaurants, hotels, and catering companies from becoming "wasted." Aside from rescuing food, RLC provides food waste consulting and excess food delivery. They utilize three main ways to target food waste:
- Localizing the issue so that they can find restaurants, hotels, and catering companies that have excess food at their location.
- Taking advantage of technology to handle the excess food -- partnering with providers to receive reports when/where there is excess food occurring.
- "Tackling food waste at its root" by bringing the remaining food waste to where its needed the most.
