What a way to celebrate! Just before his 95th birthday, Mr. Hans Blaser of Kingston has single-handedly created an endowment fund to support fresh food and health in Kingston and Area. The Loving Spoonful Fund, established this month at the Community Foundation for Kingston & Area, will provide on-going funds for school garden programming, community kitchen workshops, the direct provision of fresh food to those in need and community engagement about, and around, good food.
Mr. Blaser said this about the program and why he has put this fund together, “I was exposed to this lifestyle since the 1920s. School garden plots, cooking classes …, just as important as singing and sports. I remember at 5-1/2 years old being out in the school garden and using that food to prepare lunch.”
“I like the opportunities Loving Spoonful provides. If people cannot achieve something, they die, so we need to give people opportunities to achieve. Loving Spoonful does that in the gardens and the community kitchens.”
