Treat Cupcake Bar & Lovin’ Spoonfuls Team Up to Combat Local Hunger

Treat Cupcake Bar & Lovin’ Spoonfuls Team Up to Combat Local Hunger

For the month of March Treat Cupcake Bar’s Chestnut Hill location is supporting a special organization with their Treat Other’s Well program: Lovin’ Spoonfuls. They are a group that facilitates the recovery and distribution of healthy, perishable food that would otherwise be discarded. Lovin’ Spoonfuls works efficiently to deliver this food directly to the community organizations and resources where it can have the greatest impact. Lovin’ Spoonfuls is committed to addressing the health, environmental and economic impact that food waste has on our community.

“Since a calorie free cupcake is impossible, the next best thing would be a guilt free one. Just knowing that by eating this cupcake you help others who in most cases wouldn’t get to feed their families, the sweet intake is worth it” Marissa, Manager -Treat The Street

TOW is a unique program designed to show support for youth wanting to make a difference in the Needham and Greater Boston communities. TOW creates a platform to speak out about various concerns while simultaneously assisting deserving charities in their efforts to better their services. The program is intended to be kid-run, meaning all requests are encouraged to come from youth. TOW supports a different charity each month.

Applications, which are available on the Treat Cupcake Bar website, are accepted on a rolling basis. Each month head baker, A die Sprague, works with an individual to design a unique cupcake that will be sold throughout the month with 50% of the proceeds going directly to the applicant’s cause. Proceeds may go to an event, charity group, or ongoing cause.

Past Treat Others Well recipients include the One Fund, Boston Bakes for Breast Cancer and the Charity:Water.
