Join Healthy Eating Research, Boise State University, and the Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods project for the release of a new report: “School Fundraising Policies and Practices: A Shifting Landscape.” Following the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, schools are required to meet updated nutrition standards for foods and beverages sold at fundraisers during the school day, unless their state has established an exemption policy for occasional fundraising events. Using a series of interviews with key stakeholders in a sample of states that either prohibit or allow fundraiser exemptions, this project examined the impact on fundraising practices in districts and schools. Findings explore the successes, challenges, and financial aspects of implementing these new fundraising policies. Click here to register.
