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. 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
