Fresh Food Delivery

Fresh food delivery – every day – to those who need it in Kingston. That’s what Loving Spoonful and our dedicated, conscientious volunteers provide to 58 locations across Kingston & Area. See below for the donors and recipients.  

Loving Spoonful, working with amazing volunteers, has collected and delivered over

$1.75 million of fresh food since we started.

The food we reclaim is all healthy and perishable:  vegetables, fruit, baked goods, meats, dairy products and healthy prepared foods. All of this beautiful food passes both Loving Spoonful’s Healthy Food Guidelines and, as the Guidelines report, our own constant test: We only deliver it if it is fresh enough to feed our own families. People in poverty or struggling at a shelter need nothing less to cope.   

Food reclamation donors are covered by the Ontario Food Donation Act and have a great experience thanks to the professionalism of Loving Spoonful staff and volunteers. (visit the Donate Food to donate).   


Thank you Fresh Food Drivers! This wouldn’t work without you! We are happy to be able to offer tax receipts for mileage upon request. To join the volunteer brigade, visit the Volunteer page. 

Thank you!
