Recruiting Organization: Foundation Communities

Are you looking for a meaningful way to serve others and meet basic needs? Supper Clubs are an opportunity to provide packaged meals to residents at Foundation Communities' apartments who need help accessing nutritious food. This is truly a meaningful and essential service that volunteer groups can provide!

Current Need: Here is a list of our Austin properties. We are looking for more supper club groups to serve on a regular basis at the following communities:

  • Arbor Terrace, South central Austin
  • Bluebonnet Studios, central Austin - we're especially looking for support at this site!
  • Capital Studios, central Austin - we're especially looking for support at this site!
  • Garden Terrace, South Austin
  • Skyline Terrace, South Austin
  • Spring Terrace, Northeast Austin
  • Waterloo Terrace, Northwest Austin

"Thoughtful meals mean so much to our communities! Many of our residents feel appreciated and cared for when they receive a good, fresh meal." - Kenya L., Resident Services Manager at Skyline Terrace

´╗┐Volunteer Expectations:

  • Groups are asked to commit to providing on-going meal delivery to one of our communities 4-6 times per year; one time groups can be scheduled on occasion.
  • Volunteer groups will provide all items needed to safely prepare meals offsite and deliver them to the selected community by appointment. Depending on the site, we are asking for 50-85 meals.
  • Deliveries can be made Monday-Friday between 9 am - 5 pm, excluding holidays.
  • Due to current social distancing rules at Foundation Communities, all meals need to be delivered individually packaged (e.g. one meal per bag or box) so our staff can easily distribute to residents door to door.
  • When social distancing measures are not in place, Supper Clubs are a community meal served by the volunteer group directly to residents. We will maintain the delivery format for the foreseeable future, but hope to resume an in person format when health guidelines allow for large gatherings.
  • Foundation Communities will provide a phone orientation to the group contact(s), safe food handling guidelines, and menu suggestions.
