Description

Core Rescuer Program
Rescuing Leftover Cuisine’s mission 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. One of the ways we do this is by bringing unsold product from restaurants to the people who need it at various food pantries.

Position Summary:
Are you passionate about feeding the hungry and stopping food waste? Core Rescuers are responsible for the most important, hence core, operations of our organization. We need leaders who can lead groups of volunteers bringing bags, boxes, and tins of food from restaurants to homeless shelters. You must be able to communicate well, educating everyday volunteers about the issues of food waste and hunger while you walk. Each event is about half an hour, and the average group size is three. We require you to commit 8-10 hours a week doing this for four months. Before you begin, you will undergo training and will receive official NYC Dept of Health certification. Once you begin, you will be equipped with apparel, RLC designations, and other equipment. After successful completion of the internship, you will receive a stipend of $500-$1,000.
