Six years ago, our founder Ashley Stanley, saw a big problem with a simple solution - and from this, Lovin' Spoonfuls began. Thanks to your support - these six years have given Lovin' Spoonfuls a lot to celebrate. Since 2010, Lovin' Spoonfuls has rescued and distributed more than 3,800,000 pounds of healthy fresh food, providing more than 1.1 million meals for over 100 partner agencies, and more than 15,000 people each week who are struggling with hunger.

One of our beneficiaries explains the importance of what your gift provides. Baraka Community Wellness Center receives 300-500 pounds of fruits, vegetables, proteins and dairy from Lovin' Spoonfuls weekly. This healthy food supports their Healthy Moms, Healthy Kids program. Raheem Baraka, Executive Director, explains the impact these deliveries have had.

"Our program Healthy Moms, Healthy Kids has shown incredible results because of the nutritious food we are receiving from Lovin' Spoonfuls. For example, we had a mother with three children who at the beginning of our program had a weight loss goal of 20 pounds. By the end of the program, she more than doubled that goal- losing 43 pounds! She attributes the success specifically to exercise, health coaching, cooking workshops, and having increased, consistent access to nutritious food.

We also had a 15-year-old participant who prior to the program, was told by her primary care physician that she would need to be placed on hypertension medicine. However, after 12 weeks of being in our program, due to the increased activity and access to nutritious foods, her blood pressure dropped and she lost 20 pounds. Her doctor decided not put her on the medication, instead encouraging her to continue to sustain the healthy changes in her lifestyle. She told us that having access to our program, and the healthy fresh food which Lovin' Spoonfuls provided was a key element to her success."

Thank you for providing healthy, fresh food options to those in need, and thank you for helping Lovin' Spoonfuls continue the amazing work started six years ago.

Lovin' Spoonfuls Mission

Lovin' Spoonfuls is dedicated to facilitating the rescue and distribution of healthy, fresh food that would otherwise be discarded. Lovin' Spoonfuls works efficiently to deliver this food directly to the community organizations and resources where it can have the greatest impact. Lovin' Spoonfuls is committed to addressing the health, environmental, and economic impact that food waste has on our community.

We pick up wholesome, fresh food that would otherwise be thrown away from grocery stores, farms and farmers markets, and distribute it to community non-profits that feed Greater Boston's hungry.
