Fundraising ideas

Fundraising is an opportunity to promote health

Fundraising activities can be a great opportunity to reinforce the nutrition and health messages taught within the classroom.  Healthy fundraising options also complement the work of the canteen and form part of a supportive environment for health.

Using 'everyday foods' (e.g. fruits and vegetables) or essential items (e.g. sunscreen or coloured pencils) for fundraising rather than 'sometimes' foods (e.g. chocolates, lamingtons) or luxury items can help place less financial pressure on families.
