Lovin' Spoonfuls - A Food Rescue
- Monday, September 24, 2018MFA is proud to work with Lovin' Spoonfuls. Lovin’ Spoonfuls is an organization that facilitates the recovery and distribution of healthy, perishable food that would otherwise be discarded.
What We Do
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. Headquartered in Boston, MA, Lovin’ Spoonfuls is a 501c3, non-profit organization.
How We Can Help
We work with supermarkets, wholesalers, and other food businesses across the Greater Boston region. We utilize a direct distribution system to pick up perishable food from these businesses in our refrigerated vehicles, operated by certified and trained drivers, and deliver it to various beneficiaries within the same day.
Through Lovin’ Spoonfuls’ simple but effective model, food donors are able to reduce their waste disposal costs and emissions footprint while contributing a tax-deductible food donation to their community. Our focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, proteins, dairy, and breads allows our partner organizations to consistently serve their clients healthy and wholesome meals without increasing their own operating costs. Since 2010, the Lovin’ Spoonfuls team has rescued and distributed over 1,000,000 pounds of fresh and healthy food across Greater Boston.
