About This Charity
Loving Spoonful works to achieve a food-secure community through fresh food access, food skills and community engagement
Loving Spoonful is making Kingston healthier!
In Kitchens: Kids, teens, adults and families learn basic, affordable, healthy cooking and share great meals together. Our Community Kitchen programs create community connections around, and with, food. Throughout the harvest season, our Preserve Reserves preserve the surplus harvest for donation to shelters and other service agencies throughout the winter.
In Schools: Primary school students learn about growing food, community and cooperation in the classroom and in the GROW Project gardens on the front lawns their primary schools in Kingston
From the Farm and Grocery Store: Every year, Loving Spoonful volunteers reclaim tens of thousands of pounds of healthy, surplus, perishable food from farms, grocery stores and others and distribute it to over 30 agencies that feed our low-income neighbours and others who need good food, providing the healthy food for tens of thousands of meals here in Kingston. Gardeners Grow A Row for donation as well. Now we also deliver directly to 9 Fresh Food Market Stands that anyone can access. Set up strategically to serve those most in need!
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. Together, we are changing the food system, making it healthier, less wasteful and more accessible for everyone.
