School Fundraisers Can Be Healthy and Profitable!
Our May webinar recommendation
From the National Alliance for Nutrition & Activity:
Many schools rely on fundraising activities to supplement school budgets and pay for equipment, materials, supplies, and events. Unfortunately, many school fundraisers involve the sale of unhealthy foods. Given the rising obesity rates and children’s poor diets, many schools are reconsidering whether selling low‐nutrition foods is an appropriate way to raise money. However, identifying and initiating new fundraising strategies can be a challenge.
Join us for a webinar on Wednesday May 23 from 1‐2 p.m. EDT as we explore the current status of fundraising in schools, why healthy fundraising is important, and examples of profitable, healthier fundraising.
