Executive Director of Lovin’ Spoonfuls, Ashley Stanley, delivered a stirring talk on food rescue to SheGives members at Myers+Chang in Boston’s South End, while SheGives Founding Member Joanne Chang served up her own sustaining thoughts.
Lovin’ Spoonfuls was founded in Boston in 2010 by Ashley Stanley. It is on the forefront of a national movement to address perishable food waste as an issue that raises environmental, economic, health and hunger issues. Decomposing food makes up a significant portion of landfills, which costs us a ton of money, emits methane, a gas that is believed to have a potential negative effect on global climate change.

SheGives connects committed, inquisitive, engaged funders with a slate of diligenced nonprofits in the Greater Boston area. We provide members with relevant data about the nonprofits in our portfolio and an opportunity to meet directly with our nonprofits’ Executive Directors and senior staff in small settings that promote in-depth q&a’s and, ultimately, informed giving. Giving is personally driven, but because we give side-by-side our collective impact is greater.
