Lovin' Spoonfuls’ 8th Annual Ultimate Tailgate Party happened this past Sunday, November 18th, bringing together dozens of New England's best chefs and hundreds of generous Lovin' Spoonfuls supporters for a delicious evening of fundraising. The event raised a grand total of $375,000 which will help them expand their programs, rescue more food, and serve more people in need! It was a spectacular end to a record-breaking week in which they rescued our 11 millionth pound of food.
Board Member Andy Youniss kicked off the evening with a spirited welcome, followed by a presentation of the 5th annual Thomas M Menino Award to Senator Elizabeth Warren. Later in the evening, Culinary Board Member Andrew Zimmern kicked off their speaking program - reminding us all how food connects communities and how the work Lovin’ Spoonfuls does is needed, not only to feed people but to connect people.
