In schools, gardens, kitchens and community centres, Loving Spoonful connects people with healthy food!
Loving Spoonful connects people with good food across Kingston & Area. Working toward a healthier, more connected community, Loving Spoonful provides programs and champions policies affecting food security, poverty, social inclusion, and community health.
Loving Spoonful envisions a healthy, sustainable, food-secure community.
Bringing the Vision to Life
890 kids in classrooms and school gardens about good food, growing, collaboration and community through the GROW Project.
Families, adults and teens in Community Kitchens about cooking easy, affordable, healthy food
With over 150 partners across the region, bringing good food programming and fresh food to all!
With Kingston's 38 Community Gardens, assisting with annual reporting, grants, discounts on mulch and compost, and with establishing new gardens
With the region's gardeners and farmers who "Grow A Row" for donation to those who need fresh food most.
Over $1,800,000 of the freshest healthy produce to over 40 agencies and 18 Fresh Food Market Stands serving those experiencing hunger in Kingston since we started. That's the equivalent of over 700,000 healthy meals.
We're so glad to be working toward a new vision of food -- where fresh, healthy food is available to all and it is used to bring people together to create a vibrant, healthy community.
