Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Lovin’ Spoonfuls began intentional work around DEI in 2018, and in the wake of the murder of George Floyd and the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, we have prioritized our commitment to it.Read More
A new model
Since 1980, the number of food banks in the US has skyrocketed from 200 to 40,000 while rates of hunger increased by 7%. As the face of hunger changes, our response must change as well. At Lovin’ Spoonfuls we are committed to providing hunger relief through innovative efforts to rescue and distribute fresh food.Learn More
Only the Beginning
Learn how we are not only providing rescued food to our beneficiaries, but also educating people how to make good use of it.
Bridging the gap
Between abundance and need...
Lovin’ Spoonfuls is dedicated to facilitating the rescue and distribution of healthy, fresh food that would otherwise be discarded throughout Greater Boston, MetroWest, Hampden County and beyond every weekday. Breaking new ground in the food rescue movement, we connect community resources by linking grocery stores, produce wholesalers, and farms to local meal programs and social service entities serving those in need.
We’re doing it
Why should hunger relief be limited to non-perishable food items when there is so much fresh food available to be rescued? We are the bridge between abundance and need, providing fresh, healthy food to our neighbors who need it most, the day we rescue it.
