Healthy School Fundraising

Many schools rely on fundraising for supplementary revenue to support activities, events or equipment. Traditionally, fundraising has relied on the sale of sweets, treats and other junk food items at bake sales and concession stands. Yet, these types of fundraising efforts often undermine the healthy eating messages schools are trying to instill in students. Instead, it’s important to select fundraisers that align with the school’s local wellness policy and support healthy habits for the whole child.
