Our Values & Diversity

Core Values

Community: Lovin’ Spoonfuls offers compassionate service in direct response to the needs of the community. We provide community-based organizations with quality foods that correspond to their unique needs, and offer food education programming to help them make the most of our deliveries. We work to build an inclusive community within our organization and with our supporters.

Teamwork: Lovin’ Spoonfuls embraces teamwork, camaraderie, and collaborative problem-solving at all levels of our operation. We welcome diverse perspectives and believe that inclusivity is the only way to affect change. We build meaningful relationships through communication and transparency.

Resilience: Lovin’ Spoonfuls strives to be adaptive, consistent, and thoughtful in response to the unique challenges of food rescue and food insecurity. We persistently work towards a more equitable food system for all.

Respect: Lovin’ Spoonfuls treats our partners, colleagues, and everyone we interact with the way we expect to be treated –with dignity and fairness.  We respect the food we work with as well as the community and environment it connects us to.

Commitment: Lovin’ Spoonfuls commits to consistency, reliability, and professionalism in the work we do every day. We each commit our own unique knowledge and skills to the greater success of our mission. Through ongoing employee education and training, we remain diligent leaders at the forefront of food rescue.

Food: Lovin’ Spoonfuls believes access to healthy food is a basic human right.  We believe food acts as a unifier to bring people together, and as a foundation of well-being. We are committed to improving our food system by reducing food waste — and the adverse effects it has on our environment — and sharing resources to enable others to do the same.  

 

Everyone has a seat at our table.

At Lovin’ Spoonfuls, we believe all people have value and can bring their own unique experiences to the table. Our work serves to set the table throughout the diverse communities of Eastern Massachusetts without discrimination, and we endeavor to mirror that representation in our own organization. Our goal is to create and foster an inclusive workplace where everyone can bring their whole selves to work and where all people are valued.
