Just the facts: Lauren Palumbo

October 20, 2021 Updated: January 23, 2024

Not only was COO, Lauren Palumbo, the first team member hired to oversee Operations for Lovin’ Spoonfuls, but at eight and a half years, she is our employee with the second-longest tenure after our Founder and Executive Director, Ashley Stanley.

In her own words, here are three things you should know about Lauren:

1. “My colleagues know I’m pretty fanatical about food planning and food prep, to ensure I use up everything on hand and to make time for cooking in a busy schedule.”

2. “I have an absurdly large cookbook collection (150+). I love cooking and used to challenge myself to cook something new each week, and now I rarely cook the same recipe twice.”

3. “I graduated from the same high school as one of our Food Rescue Coordinators, Abby, who’s pictured with me here.”
