‘Lasagna Love’ now offering free comfort food to anyone in need

Back when pandemic shutdowns were just starting, a group of foodies from around the country wanted to provide a little comfort. So they started an organization built around their favorite comfort food, lasagna. Today, they’re still delivering the piping hot comfort to peoples’ doors free of charge, around the country and the world. That includes right here in the Capital Region.

While everyone’s hoping the worst of the pandemic is behind us, there’s still work to be done for Lasagna Love.

"There is such a great need. There’s food insecurity now," said Kelly Andolina. "It doesn’t matter just that we’re coming out of the pandemic. There’s all kinds of need."

Andolina loves making lasagna, and loves the idea of sharing it with others. So when a group called "Lasagna Love" started in California, dedicated to making and delivering the Italian classic to first responders and people in quarantine, she signed right up. Now she’s the regional director overseeing four states. The effort has even expanded internationally to places such as Australia and Canada.
