Raising money through fundraisers can support the financial health of schools. Yet, when non-nutritious foods are sold, it is at the expense of the health and well-being of children and their families. Eating habits are greatly influenced by the types of foods and beverages that are available. When schools sell candy, cookies, and other unhealthy foods, they are increasing their availability. Schools across New York are changing how they fundraise—whether it’s to provide fun, family activities; to help community members recycle unwanted electronics; or to sell school promotional items—to make a positive impact in the community. Some of the most successful ideas are provided on this handout.
OPCE developed a document with practical guidance and resources to use when developing, adopting, implementing, and evaluating food service guidelines. These guidelines are intended to help CHSC coordinators consider the range of settings where they can influence healthy food options, and to showcase useful resources and tools. Champions within an organization can also use these guidelines to improve their worksite nutritional environments.
