The Lunchbox Fund is a registered South African NPO whose goal is to uplift education and childhood development through in-school nutrition. We currently provide 25,000 children nationally with a hot nutritionally fortified meal each school day. This meal incentivises caregivers to send their children to school, and enables children to learn and develop while they are there. LBF works in early childhood development centres, playgroups, schools, and afterschool programmes.

The Lunchbox Fund is looking for conscientious and talented individuals to serve on the Board of Directors. Board Members are needed who can offer assistance and oversight in: long-term strategic planning; fundraising strategy and planning; and provide monitoring support within the fiscal, legal, governance and ethical performance of our organisation and its role in serving the needs of children in South Africa with in-school nutrition.

Board Members ideally will have skill and experience in the non-profit sector, and particular expertise in one or more of the following sectors:

  • Fundraising and Philanthropy
  • Business Management
  • Accounting/Auditing
  • Community Leadership
  • Early Childhood Development/Education
  • Human Resources

Time requirements of our Board Members include quarterly meetings, and one additional annual general meeting.

Contact: if you are interested in applying or learning more.
