New name, bolder commitment to food recovery and hunger relief.
Announcing our Strategic Plan: Check out where we’re headed – and how you can support our vision here!
Through food recovery and distribution, education, and advocacy, we work to address the health, environmental, and economic impact that wasted food has on people and the planet.
By intercepting perfectly good, unsold food and getting it from where it is to community programs feeding people facing food insecurity, we’re able to reach over 55,000 people each week with fresh, wholesome food.
Keeping food out of landfills is an important way we reduce our carbon footprint and mitigate the effects of climate change. Each week, Spoonfuls’ team keeps over 90,000 pounds of food from landfills.
Wasted food wastes resources, too – not to mention all the time and money it takes to get food from farm to fork. We work to ensure food meets its ultimate purpose: to feed people! The food we recover equates to roughly $169,000 worth per week.

We work with hundreds of businesses to get good food from where it is to those who need it now. We partner primarily with food retailers and brands like grocery stores, wholesalers, farms, and farmers’ markets that donate their unsold-but-still-good food. We pick up food five days per week and deliver it directly, same day, to community organizations like local pantries, meal programs, shelters, senior centers, after school programs, and more that serve neighbors facing food insecurity.
