We offer weekly subscriptions, delivered directly to your home or child’s school. Home delivery is offered for either 3 meals a week, 5 meals a week or 7 meals a week. School delivery is completely customizable—pick between 1-5 meals each week!

Yes! You can view the current menu for the upcoming week on each of the plan pages: School Delivery, 7 Meals/Week Home Delivery, 5 Meals/Week Home Delivery3 Meals/Week Home Delivery

Yes! You have multiple options for your weekly meals — we’ve found that kids really enjoy being involved in the process. As we understand that preferences can vary from kid to kid, we provide a meat or vegetarian/plant-based option per day, as well as two fan-favorites: the Purrfect Pizza and Sunny Butter & Jelly.  

As we cook all meals prior to delivery, our culinary team needs a little extra notice if you’d like to make a change to your subscription. This includes skipping, pausing, canceling, swapping days, or menu edits. All changes need to be communicated prior to Wednesday 11:59 PM Pacific Time for the following Sunday-Saturday. Please note that we are unable to make any changes to a current week’s subscription.

If the deadline has passed, we will make the changes for the next available week, which may be up to 10 days later. We are unable to make any changes to a current week’s subscription, as our culinary team preps and cooks all meals prior to delivery.

Lunch Bunch has options for vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and soy free. To find which meals fit your child’s needs, apply the filter on our meals page. Lunch Bunch is a peanut and tree-nut-free (except coconut) facility.

Meals are delivered fresh daily, M-F, to our partner schools. The meals are delivered in insulated bags with ice packs, and distributed to the kids by school staff at meal time. If a snack and drink are included, they will be distributed at the appropriate time.

We work directly with the school administration to receive holiday and school closure calendars, but please let us know if we miss any closures.

Meals for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday are delivered Sundays between 9:30AM-2PM PT, and meals for Thursday and Friday are delivered Wednesdays 8AM-2PM PT. You will receive a delivery text when your meals are on the way. If the door is not answered, the driver will leave the meal in a safe and shaded place, if possible. Please leave your insulated bags outside for our drivers to pick up, and help us in our mission to care for the planet! 

Lunch Bunch takes every possible measure to ensure that the food that arrives on your doorstep is safe. We have strict ingredient sourcing protocols, HACCP software, a food safety consultant, and a team of highly experienced chefs with numerous food safety certifications.

While Lunch Bunch can be enjoyed by all (we see you sneaking bites!), we design the meals specifically for kids ages 3-10. We will likely expand these age categories in the future, so stay tuned.

Our meals were designed to be eaten at room temperature. We recommend letting the meals sit, covered, at room temperature for 30 minutes before your little ones dig in! If your little one prefers, here’s instructions for heating our meals:

  • Microwave: Transfer to a microwave safe dish and heat for 1-2 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165° F. Heating times may vary. Test temperature before serving.
  • Oven: Preheat oven to 350° F. Transfer the meal to an oven-safe dish. Heat for 5–10 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165° F. Heating times may vary. Test temperature before serving.
  • Cool before serving. Enjoy!

Lunch Bunch meals are designed to stay fresh in the refrigerator 3-5 days.

Lunch Bunch meals are designed to be enjoyed fresh. We do not recommend freezing the meals, as our fresh fruits and vegetables will lose quality.

At this time we accept most major credit cards including VISA, Mastercard, Discover and American Express.

You can cancel your subscription through your Account portal or by emailing Customer Support at [email protected] any time before the renewal date. Please note this will only affect future orders.

Lunch Bunch meals are prepared fresh and packed just for you at our facility in Boyle Heights, CA. 

Yes! We always work with local food producers to make sure that all of our ingredients are local & at maximum freshness before being prepared.

While our food containers are not recyclable, they are made from recycled plastic. We are working towards a packaging solution that is recyclable!

Leave that to us! Place your bags (with ice packs inside) by your front door or your place of delivery. Our drivers will collect them as they drop off your meals, and our team will sanitize and reuse them.

Get in touch with us via email at [email protected], text us at or call us at +1 424-252-3667. Our Customer Support team operates Monday-Friday 9am-5pm and Sunday 10am-2pm Pacific Time. We’ll get back to you within 48 hours.
