Doing good in Austin: One box of produce at a time

At Sonder, we’re focused on supporting and partnering with local businesses in cities where we operate. That’s why we’re excited to collaborate with Good Apple in Austin to support its mission of ending food insecurity and waste. Guests staying with Sonder in Austin for more than 14 days can now use the code SONDER10 to get $10 off their first box of delicious produce from Good Apple’s website. Good Apple is a 1-for-1 produce delivery service that delivers a free box of produce to a family in need for every box sold. All produce is sourced locally and features a variety of fresh in-season produce each week.

The partnership was driven by our Austin team member and Good Apple subscriber, Madeline Kennedy who shared, “It’s great to help keep imperfectly good food from going to waste while nourishing my body with organic produce, as well as supporting local farmers, a local business, and my neighbors. I’ve been a Good Apple subscriber for awhile now and thought introducing this service to longer-term Sonder guests would be a fantastic way to support the Austin community, while enabling guests to enjoy incredible produce delivered straight to their door.”

Good Apple COO, Gabe Breternitz, emphasized that partnerships with organizations in the Austin community, like their recent COVID-19 Stay Home, Stay Healthy program with the Austin Transportation Department and CapMetro, is “truly essential to strengthening our ties and lifting up our neighbors in need.” He added, “I’m so happy to partner with Sonder in Austin to enable their guests to help contribute to making our community stronger while enjoying some delicious local farm-fresh produce!” 

This partnership is a reflection of our commitment to the communities Sonder calls home. Through local engagement, this is one of the ways we tap into the spirit of place and commit to fostering the community’s social, cultural, environmental and economic well-being.
