Lovin’ Spoonfuls is dedicated to facilitating the rescue and distribution of healthy, fresh food that would otherwise be discarded. They work efficiently to deliver this food directly to the community organizations and nonprofits that feed Greater Boston's hungry.
In the U.S., nearly 40 percent of the food produced is wasted. And, 42 million Americans are food insecure. Lovin' Spoonfuls rescues more than 65,000 pounds of nutritious, perishable food each week, and distributes it to 130+ nonprofits, reaching more than 35,000 people. Our partners include homeless shelters, after school programs, elderly service programs and crisis centers.
We operate a fleet of 6 refrigerated trucks and reach 38 cities and towns across Massachusetts. To date, Lovin' Spoonfuls has rescued 8 MILLION pounds of food (that's over 8 billion calories!)
This campaign will help us feed more people across more communities. Each dollar donated to Lovin' Spoonfuls rescues 3 pounds of fresh, healthy food and feeds a person for a day.
Please support us in this challenge! Help us to alleviate hunger and combat food waste by sharing this campaign!
