Lauren Palumbo is chief operating officer of Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Since 2010, the organization has been breaking new ground in the food rescue movement working with retailers, like Wegmans, Hannaford Supermarkets and Whole Foods Markets, to rescue 25,000 pounds of fresh, healthy food per week from more than 50 locations. Lovin’ Spoonfuls utilizes a direct distribution system where its refrigerated trucks pick up fresh, healthy, perishables foods from donors and deliver it directly to meal centers within the same day. It works with retailers to craft solutions specific to their business, their needs and their schedule. With the Massachusetts Commercial Food Waste Ban in effect, Lovin' Spoonfuls is working with the DEP and the Massachusetts Food Association to educate businesses on their options for diverting food waste from the waste stream. Lauren has deep roots in the food industry, most recently serving as Director of Marketing & Operations for New France, LLC.
