We appreciate your interest in Lovin’ Spoonfuls! Handling fresh and prepared food requires compliance with regulations set forth by the state of Massachusetts and Lovin’ Spoonfuls employs professional drivers who are licensed, insured, and ServSafe certified. We are currently unable to take volunteers for food rescue due to these strict regulations.
However, we work with over 100 beneficiaries who are often looking for extra help with a variety of services and projects. To help us better aid these partners, we built this volunteer guide. In it, you will find specific information provided by each organization on how you (or a group of volunteers) could help their organization and the community that they serve.
In addition, there are occasional opportunities to get involved in our work:
- We love to have volunteers for events and fundraising days – sign up here to join the mailing list for volunteer opportunities;
- Ask your local grocery store how they handle food waste and if they’d be interested in partnering with us;
- Let us know if there is a potential donor in your area that we should be aware of;
- Donate money to help keep our trucks on the road and keep providing wholesome food to those who need it most.
