“Delivering food with purpose,” isn’t just what Spoonfuls does, it’s a reflection of what we do and how we do it.

We asked community members, “What does ‘delivering food with purpose’ mean to you?” Here are just a handful of amazing responses.

‘Delivering food with purpose’ is about ensuring everyone has access to fresh, nutritious food, regardless of [their] circumstances. Food is a basic human right! Everyone deserves access to nutritious food without breaking the bank.
– An advocate and community member 

Food with purpose is affording people dignity in their food choices and options for fresh foods that [they] may not otherwise be able to afford at the time.

Spoonfuls gets our community one step closer to alleviating food insecurity. There is a lot of food out there that would go to waste if not for their work and that of their partners.

It comes down to understanding the real needs. [Forming] sustainable and responsible partnerships. Providing healthy options.
