Raising healthy funds

Fundraising and community gatherings are an integral part of a school's culture. Providing unhealthy food at these events or selling unhealthy food for fundraising drives can contradict the positive nutrition messages children are learning at school. Selling fairy floss at the annual fete, having chocolate or wine drives or using lollies as prizes at the disco may create sales and excitement, but are counterproductive. Here are some tips for making those fundraisers and events healthier:

Healthier Options for the Sausage Sizzle

If you're holding a BBQ try replacing the traditional sausage and encourage healthier alternatives.

  • Try alternatives to sausages, like low-fat steak or chicken kebabs
  • Try using low-fat sausages (<10g fat per 100g) or try healthy choice sausages like chicken or kangaroo
  • Provide a variety of breads/rolls, including wholemeal, multi-grain or white high fibre varieties.
  • Use salt reduced or no added salt varieties of tomato and BBQ sauce
  • Have lots of salad with your healthy hot dogs - either in your bread roll or as a side salad

Active Events

Students, staff and parents can all participate in active events or fundraisers. Try these ideas:

  • Students collect sponsors for a lap-a-thon, obstacle course, bike-a-thon.  Or provide students with an 'active passport' filled with activities they receive sponsorship money for.  Activities could include riding or walking to school, building a cubby, skipping, playing on a playground; or students could earn points and sponsorship dollars for every hour of physical activity they complete
  • Try car washes, fun runs, scavenger hunts and discos to get kids moving while raising money

Healthy Ideas for a Fundraising Drive

If you want to run a drive that promotes healthy eating (rather than high fat, high sugar foods or alcohol) these ideas might be just what you need.

  • Hot cross buns
  • Seedlings, plants and bulbs
  • Sunscreen or hats
  • T-shirts, cards, calendars etc. featuring students' artwork
  • Selling produce grown in the school vegie patch

Running a Healthy Food Stall

You might be surprised at how successful a healthy food or drink stall could be. Choose from:

  • Slinkied apples
  • Fruit juices, smoothies, fruit salad or fruit kebabs
  • Healthier muffins, scones and slices
  • Baked potatoes
  • Soup with bread
  • Noodle boxes or curries with rice
  • Drink stall - if you choose to hold a drink stall swap the soft drink for small 100% fruit juices or low fat flavoured milks (small means <350mL). Water - or reusable water bottles - can be a great seller too
