Welcome Volunteers,

Sunday Lunchbox supports Austin families facing food insecurity by providing healthy and delicious meals for kids. We support local Texas farmers and small businesses while providing nourishing meals for our children.

The Produce Manager represents our overall mission to use produce that is always fresh, in-season, and organic. This position requires an ongoing commitment of about 4 hours each week.

Please note: Food deliveries are Sundays, so produce pick-ups may be on Sunday mornings or receiving produce delivery at the north Austin location (Spicewood Springs and 183 North).


Volunteer Duties:

  • Community research to find sources of local/organic produce.
  • Ensure we have weekly in-season produce available for our families by working with one partner farm or collecting several to serve our needs.
  • Communication with farms, negotiating prices, and logistics.
  • Facilitate streamlined gathering and redistribution of produce from local farms to our families, which may mean:
  • Produce pick-ups on Sunday mornings OR
  • Receiving produce delivery on Sundays at the north Austin location.
  • Report to the executive director.
  • ~4 hours/week.



This volunteer opportunity is in an indoor kitchen. We encourage volunteers and staff to stay abreast of current COVID-19 regulations and recommendations as they change.
