About This Charity
Loving Spoonful is a non-profit organization in Kingston that works to enhance access to healthy food in an empowering, inclusive, and environmentally sustainable manner.
About Our Charity
We work to combat hunger in Kingston in several ways:
1. Food Reclamation: We reclaim over 40,000 pounds of healthy, surplus, perishable food from grocers, restaurants, farmers and caterers and distribute it to agencies that feed low-income people, providing the healthy food for over 40,000 meals.
2. The GROW Project: We teach Grade 5/6 students about growing food, community and cooperation in the classroom and in the GROW gardens on the front lawns of primary schools in Kingston
3. Community Gardens: We coordinate the Community Garden Network for the City of Kingston, offering workshops, convening the individual community gardens and problem solving.
4. Preserve Reserves: We coordinate volunteers who preserve some of the the harvest as it is is donated so the produce can be distributed to shelters and meal programs throughout the year. The "Reserves" learn preserving skills and make new friends while providing healthy food.
5. Community Kitchens: We teach basic cooking skills to low-income children, youth and adults through our hands-on cooking workshops.
6. Policy Work: We are active participants in the Food Policy Council for KFL&A, the Kingston Food Providers and Sustain Ontario. We are also a Good Food Organization under the umbrella of Community Food Centres Canada.
