We’ll get there. We promise. But first…remember to support your local restaurants this Small Business Saturday. They really need you – and gift cards make great holiday presents!
Now this: Hunger and climate change are problems every day – so you don’t have to wait until Giving Tuesday to do something to help! With around 40% of all the food that’s produced in the United States going to waste, supporting Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a food rescue, is a powerful thing you can do today.
Here are three simple ways to lend your support to Lovin’ Spoonfuls and our network!
- Give. Every $1 you give to Lovin’ Spoonfuls allows us to keep 3 lbs. of good food out of landfills and feeds a person for a day. Our non-profit partners need you, too. These are the pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, recovery programs, after-school programs, senior centers, and more that distribute the food Lovin’ Spoonfuls rescues to people who need it.
- Fundraise for Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Crowdfunding is a simple way to raise awareness about the issue of wasted food and generate support for Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ operations! It takes only about five minutes to launch your own crowdfunding page and share it on your social sites. Click here to get started.
- If you see something, share something! Be sure to follow along with Lovin’ Spoonfuls this holiday season on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and share our content with others. This is one way we engage new people in learning more about the issue of wasted food.
