RLS Logistics takes Food Cowboy’s 2018 Wrangler Award

Arlington, Virginia, USA: RLS Logistics has won the 2018 Wrangler Award presented by the Food Cowboy Foundation.

The Food Cowboy Foundation works to reduce food loss and waste to redirect food from landfills.

RLS Logistics is a New-Jersey based temperature-controlled warehousing and logistics provider that has been a member of GCCA for 19 years. The Wrangler Award is an annual initiative that was launched in 2018 to recognize leadership in reducing waste within the food industry.

Throughout 2018, RLS Logistics demonstrated its commitment to reducing waste through support and use of Food Cowboy’s donation hotline, which connects food donors with organizations who provide meals to food insecure people, elderly, or children in need.

The RLS Logistics’ over, short, and damaged team used the hotline to donate over 60,000 pounds of surplus fresh and frozen food, with almost 60% of the food donated being high quality protein. Their 12 months of donations will help to provide over 50,000 meals to communities in need.

“We are honored to win the Wrangler Award for our efforts towards food waste reduction,” said Rhonda Whittaker, from RLS Logistics. “As a company handling massive quantities of food, we realized that we had the ability to impact hunger in the US and we couldn’t say no to that. Also, Food Cowboy makes it easy for companies like ours to donate with their donation hotline.”
