About This Charity

Our Mission

Loving Spoonful is a Kingston charity that enhances access to healthy food in an empowering, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable manner.

About Our Charity

Loving Spoonful works to create a better food system in Kingston in several ways:

In Kitchens:  Kids, teens, adults and families lear basic, healthy cooking and share great meals together.  Creating community connections around, and with, food.

In Schools:  Grade 5/6 students learn about growing food, community and cooperation in the classroom and in the GROW gardens on the front lawns their primary schools in Kingston

From the Farm: Loving Spoonful volunteers "rescue" over tens of thousands of pounds of healthy, surplus, perishable food from farms, grocery stores and others and distribute it to 25 agencies that feed our low-income neighbours, providing the healthy food for tens of thousands of meals here in Kingston.

In Community Gardens:  Loving Spoonful convene the Community Garden Network for the City of Kingston, offering hands-on workshops, supporting the community gardens and making gardening irresistible.

Around the Table:  Loving Spoonful is an active participant in the Food Policy Council for KFL&A and the Kingston Food Providers, working to make progress at the policy level as well as directly on the ground.  

Nationally:  Loving Spoonful is a Good Food Organization under the umbrella of Community Food Centres Canada.
