a new model
Since 1980, the number of food banks in the US has skyrocketed from 200 to 40,000 and rates of hunger have increased by 7%. As the face of hunger changes, hunger relief must change as well. At Lovin’ Spoonfuls we are committed to rescuing food through innovative and daily efforts.Learn More

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 and 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.
