Give some Lovin’
This season, holiday gift-givers can open their hearts and give a gift that so many take for granted. During the holidays, as most share a warm meal with loved ones, thousands of families go hungry. Not-for-profit Lovin' Spoonfuls gives the gift of healthy meals all year long, and anyone can join in on their fight by making a holiday donation. Ashley Stanley, founder and director of Lovin’ Spoonfuls, has transformed the way that Bostonians look at food, food rescue and non-profit organizations. Lovin’ Spoonfuls fights to eradicate hunger by rescuing perishable, unserved food from farms, supermarkets, restaurants and other retail outlets and delivering it to local crisis centers and social assistance organizations so they can feed wholesome, healthy food to those who need it the most. This is the ultimate gift for the holidays: a freshly prepared meal, courtesy of Lovin’ Spoonfuls. Donations and helping hands are greatly appreciated as they fight to end hunger and food waste.

Bigger is Better: Large Format Wines
Around the holidays, The Wine ConneXtion, located in North Andover, MA, sets out in search of rare large format wines produced by some of the most prestigious wineries in the world.
