Many groups and schools look for just the right food to sell for fundraisers. In most cases, they look for the most profitable food fundraisers. While the most profitable food fundraiser will make your group the most profit per item, it might not sell as well. For example, a group selling nuts and snacks will make higher profit per item, as those products are non-frozen and cheaper to ship. However, actual food items may sell better as supporters will see their donation result in a meal or sustenance for their family as opposed to snacks.
Schools around the country all have different guidelines for what they can sell when it comes to selling food fundraising products in school. From nutritional guidelines, to allergens and sugars, one should check with the Principal or whoever may have authority over school fundraisers before they get started with a food fundraiser. Wow Fundraising has many years experience helping schools raise money with food fundraisers. We have assembled a list of food products that pass most schools’ strict sugar, allergen, and nutrition standards.
New regulations for schools have drastically affected selling food products within schools. These new regulations enforce or restrict the selling of certain foods that do not meet the nutrition, sugar, or allergen guidelines.
