Businesses in the Chestnut Hill Square retail complex at 200 Boylston St. are joining together for a fund-raiser March 11 to benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls, a Boston-based nonprofit that facilitates the distribution of healthy, perishable food that would otherwise be thrown away. The Ride n’ Dine event starts at 11:30 a.m. with a 45-minute cycling class at SoulCycle, followed by lunch at Brio Tuscan Grille. Lovin’ Spoonfuls founder and executive director Ashley Stanley, and a representative from Rosie’s Place, one of the recipients of the “rescued” food, will speak about the organization’s mission. Since its launch in 2010, the Lovin’ Spoonfuls organization has collected more than 1 million pounds of fresh food earmarked for disposal, and distributed it to local soup kitchens, homeless shelters, and crisis centers, according to an announcement. The donation for Ride n’ Dine is $100, and all proceeds will benefit Lovin’ Spoonfuls. More information and tickets are available online at www.lovinspoonfulsridendine.eventbrite.com.
