The Power of Ideas
We shine a light on Boston’s new power class: the visionaries, idealists, and thinkers among us whose insights are transforming the way we live, work, learn, and play.
Founder and CEO, Lovin’ Spoonfuls
The Idea: Getting excess food to the hungry.
Stanley started her food-rescue nonprofit Lovin’ Spoonfuls in 2010 with a single insulated truck. Four years later, she’s now up to a fleet of four, and is on track to rescue one million pounds of excess food in 2014. The trucks travel throughout Greater Boston picking up overstock at large-shelf grocers and farms, then redistribute it to organizations like Rosie’s Place and the Pine Street Inn. Now Stanley has plans to expand throughout the state, and eventually across the country.
