a new model
Since 1980, the number of food banks in the US has skyrocketed from 200 to 40,000, while rates of hunger have increased by 7%. Hunger forces more and more people to make impossible decisions. As the face of hunger changes, hunger relief must change as well.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 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
Why should hunger relief stop at non-perishable food items when there is so much fresh food already available? We are the bridge between abundance and need, providing fresh, healthy food to our neighbors who need it most.
