Loving Spoonful enhances access to healthy food in Kingston. We don’t ask often, but we are asking that you please give generously to our holiday campaign.
We deliver food, education programming, and service community gardens to ensure food is available all year long to over twenty shelters, hot meal programs and other social service agencies. We coordinate community gardens, program at GROW gardens at 5 primary schools, provide cooking workshops to build cooking skills and advocate on food and poverty issues. This December, we are sharing stories about our programs as we reflect and celebrate another year of service. Your support is what makes stories like this come to life:
“Over the past four years the staff and students of JG Simcoe PS have had a wonderful and successful shared experience through the GROW garden at our school. What began as an opportunity to simply engage students in an experiential learning activity has evolved into an ongoing connection and understanding in our school and community with respect to our shared connection to food and each other.
JG Simcoe PS has long been the hub of our local community, connecting our students and their families to resources and assisting them in engaging with each other. The benefits of the garden as a learning environment to long lasting understanding of healthy food choices and participation in garden activities, has deepened the connection between our school and our community. Participation in the garden has fostered a greater sense of independence around food security and production for many of our students and families.”
Darren Seymour, Principal of JG Simcoe Public School
