All of our programs work towards the goal of food sovereignty:

“Food Sovereignty is the right of peoples and communities to healthy and culturally appropriate food, produced through ecologically sound and sustainable methods, and their right to define and control their own food systems.”

For educators, gardeners, and advocates

“I’m encouraged that there are so many people committed to positive ecological and social practices. It’s easy to get discouraged when there are so many people being ground down by capitalism. Loving Spoonful is a little corner of the world where people value humans and the environment.”
