Volunteer opportunity description
Do you want to hone your leadership skills, meet interesting and compassionate people, gain non-profit experience, reduce food waste and help the food insecure all at the same time? Become a Lead Rescuer!
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.
We are looking for passionate volunteers to join our team as a Lead Rescuer who would want to commit to weekly food pickups from an office in the Financial District and on-foot deliveries to a nearby homeless shelter to feed those who need it the most! This event is every Monday-Friday at 2:30 PM and lasts an hour or less.
Lead Rescuers are the faces of our organization. After short training, they interact with volunteers, engage the homeless shelters, and form relationships with partner food providers. They will learn about food waste and hunger in their communities, as well as the many ways to solve these issues. Lead Rescuers lead events every week depending on their schedule. Please consider becoming a Lead Rescuer and help us leave only hunger behind!
Lead Rescuers commit to one event, once a week. Training at our Lead Rescuer Orientation is required for this position. Lead Rescuers under the age of 18 need to submit a signed parental/legal guardian consent form.
