Almost 20,000 people in Kingston live below the poverty line. Thousands more are also unable to buy the healthy food that keeps minds and bodies working.
Loving Spoonful is a non-profit organization working to change this.
Together we can make a difference.
To work with communities to enhance healthy food access for low-income individuals and families in Kingston.
To increase the amount of fresh food available through local meal programs and to combat food waste and its adverse environmental effects.
To build community awareness of the multiple factors that contribute to food insecurity.
