Business Details

We know food brings people together.

Loving Spoonful is a vibrant local grassroots charity with the aim to increase access to local and healthy food throughout the community in a variety of ways including direct food delivery programs. The staff and volunteers seek donations from farmers, grocery stores, caterers, and bakeries so that they can provide fresh and local food to 25 different meal programs and shelters.

In addition, Loving Spoonful makes the best use of their connections and resources by freezing fall surplus and providing food during the winter months. The Loving Spoonful also provides programs for 7 elementary schools. These schools have gardens set up on site as a means to educate students about the food system.

Mara Shaw is the Executive Director of Loving Spoonful and she explains that the philosophy is about connecting the community in a positive and enriching manner through food. "We have people on our staff who understand the nutrition aspect of it and I know that’s important. But for me, it’s about bringing people together and creating that sense of community that we can all be part of in making the community better."

We want to reduce social isolation by using food and cooking as a vehicle to do that. It’s so exciting. There’s 2 aspects to it: we want to connect people to the food system and healthy eating but also want to use food to connect people. We know food brings people together. We’re in the perfect position to be able to do that.
