Rescuing Leftover Cuisine (RLC) prevents consumable excess food from going to waste by diverting it to feed people instead of landfills! We engage community members as volunteer “Rescuers” to pick up surplus food from our donor partners (businesses) and deliver it to our recipient human service agency partners (HSAs, many of which are listed here), at no cost to the recipient.

Email [email protected] and we can pick up excess food to deliver to any Ample Harvest partner at no cost to them.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
