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, Worcester County, 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
More than three-quarters of surplus food comes from perishable items. We are the bridge between abundance and need, providing fresh, healthy food to our neighbors who need it most, the day we rescue it.
