Rescuing Leftover Cuisine


Rescuing Leftover Cuisine is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization, operating across the United States and headquartered in New York City, that redistributes excess food to feed people experiencing food insecurity. There are currently eight branches across the United States, including Columbus, Ohio, which was founded in 2018. RLC Columbus is committed to reducing waste and ending hunger in the Central Ohio Region.

Nearly 2 in 10 households in Columbus, OH are experiencing food insecurity.

Food insecurity does not only impact low-income families. Many of the same families also struggle with issues related to housing and medical costs.

Franklin County ranks among the top 10 counties in Ohio for families challenged with food insecurity.

Over a million pounds of food waste enters the landfill every single day from residential and commercial sources in Franklin County.

RLC Columbus bridges the gap between food excess and insecurity

As of May 2022, RLC has rescued over 200,000 pounds of food and provided over 170,000 meals for our community.

This is a community effort that can only be accomplished through partnership. Galaxy Health Family Practice, LLC is a proud partner of RLC Columbus. Galaxy Health Family Practice will make a donation for each Patient Referral completed and will also work alongside Rescuing Life Cuisine to increase our contribution to grow our impact on fighting food insecurity and hunger in the Central Ohio community.
