Event Details

In the U.S., 40 percent of food gets tossed every year—and that amounts to $162 billion in waste annually. To address this problem in New York City Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) cooperates with over 150 restaurants in New York City to deliver more than 40,000 pounds of food per month to families and individuals in need.

Please join YALE.NYC on Saturday October 28, 2017 to volunteer with RLC to combat food waste in NYC. We will be meeting in downtown Manhattan from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. to help pick up food and transport to food pantries in New York City. We will be doing deliveries from three restaurants to two food pantries.  We will be walking and delivering by foot and estimate that each volunteer will be walking around 2 miles and carrying around 5 pounds of food. Meeting location and instructions will be emailed to you prior to the event.

The $5 ticketing fee helps us manage attendance, and is donated to our Foodtober non-profit beneficiaries. This event has a limited number of tickets. Please reserve yours now to assure your spot. For any additional information please contact Astrid Andre at astridandre@aya.yale.edu.
