About Lovin' Spoonfuls
Established in 2010 by founder Ashley Stanley, Lovin’ Spoonfuls operates the largest food rescue agency in New England. It is also the first organization of its kind in Massachusetts. Driven by a passion for change, Lovin’ Spoonfuls successfully serves over 40 cities and towns across Greater Boston, MetroWest, and Hampden County through the rescue and distribution of healthy and fresh food that would otherwise be discarded. Lovin’ Spoonfuls is committed to addressing the health, environmental, and economic impact that food waste has on the community. Hunger isn’t a problem of supply, it’s a problem of distribution. It is this belief that leads Lovin’ Spoonfuls on its journey in bridging the gap between abundance and need.
Working with over 200 partners, Lovin’ Spoonfuls collects product from participating organizations, such as local grocery stores, produce wholesalers, farms and farmers’ markets, and then strategically plans and distributes the collected food to 150 nonprofits that address food insecurity throughout Massachusetts. Each week, Lovin’ Spoonfuls proudly delivers about 80,000 pounds of food to those in need; more than 14 million pounds have been rescued to date.
