Sustainability Startups and Nonprofits

Join Gallatin’s Alumni Working Group in Sustainability for a special conversation with guest speaker Robert Lee (Stern BA ’13), co-founder and CEO of Rescuing Leftover Cuisine. RLC is a national 501(c)3 nonprofit food rescue organization that Lee began while an NYU undergraduate. Headquartered in New York City, RLC operates in 16 cities across the US, providing solutions to prevent excess wholesome cuisine from being wasted. To start RLC, Lee drew from his experience as president of Two Birds One Stone, a student club that delivered unused dining hall food to homeless shelters, to help him learn best practices of operations in delivering food, fostered relationships within the industry, and honed volunteer management skills. Two Birds One Stone was awarded an NYU Green Grant for the best green initiative on campus. After graduating from NYU, Robert worked at JP Morgan Chase & Co. before co-founding RLC. Whether you are a student pursuing an entrepreneurial project or an alum interested in the sustainability and/or nonprofit sectors, please join the AWG in Sustainability for an exciting conversation.
