1 in 7 Canadian households are food insecure. This means that either they worry about feeding themselves and their families, or they can’t. This is detrimental to physical health, mental health, ability to learn, and ability to thrive. That's why your support is incredibly important.
Loving Spoonful works towards a future without food insecurity, and operates completely on grants and donations.
Your support will go towards connecting people with good food by increasing access to it with dignity (over $2 million worth delivered), expanding cooking and food skills with adults and families that bring it to the table (400+ yearly), and building capacity and opportunity to grow it for themselves and for others - all while fostering an inclusive community and environmental stewardship.
There are different ways that you can give - One-time or Monthly, Securities, and Employer Matched Gifts, In-Kind Donations, and Legacy Funds. See below for more information.
Please give today!
DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT!
The Community Foundation for Kingston & Area is offering a dollar-for-dollar match of up to $1,000 for new gifts to the Loving Spoonful Endowment Fund from now until December 31, 2021.
There's no better time to support the valuable work of connecting people with good food in Kingston & Area!
One-time or Monthly Donations
We're flexible, so giving is easy.
A donation of securities or mutual funds is the most efficient way to give. Since capital gains taxes don't apply, Loving Spoonful would receive the full fair market value when the security is sold, and you get a tax receipt which reﬂects your larger contribution. This allows you to give more and get more.
Other Ways to Donate
We are also grateful for employer-matched gifts, in-kind donations and legacy funds. For more information about giving in these ways, please contact our Interim Executive Director, Melanie Redman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your support! It makes our work possible.
" I need you to know how grateful we are for the delicious fruit, veggies, and treats! I tell everyone about Loving Spoonful and I don't think I ever get through sharing without a few tears! "
