Best Food Fundraisers
When hosting food fundraisers, we often struggle to come up with perfect ideas for what items to sell. We want something popular, creative, and easy to prepare all at the same time, but do such items even exist?
YES! Here are some perfect food fundraising ideas for all teachers, parents, music directors, dance coaches, and sport coaches for elementary, middle, and high school students.
- Popcorn Fundraiser: Popcorn is a classic yet popular choice for a food fundraiser. If you’ve already done popcorn fundraisers before, you might consider spicing it up with unique flavors like fruit rainbow, peanut butter chocolate, cookies and cream, cinnamon toast, or cheddar jalapeno.
- Pretzel Rod Fundraiser: Pretzel sticks are low-calorie snacks that satisfy both your sweet and salty cravings. Get creative with toppings like candy coating and rainbow sprinkles, crunchy toffee, or chocolate chunks.
- Cheesecake Fundraiser: Who can say no cheesecake? If you want a special treat added to your fundraiser, cheesecake would be a great choice. Make it fancy by adding delicious flavors like strawberry swirl, Oreo cookies, or caramel.
- Frozen Food Fundraiser: This is something supporters can purchase, take home, and eat fresh or save for later. There are wide range of frozen food options like pizza, cookie doughs, soup/dip/cake mix, cobblers, and cinnamon rolls.
What’s cool about these ideas is that you don’t have to exhaust your time and energy making these. Although preparing the food can be the fun part of hosting food fundraisers, there are many food program options out there that prepare and deliver everything to your organization. This makes fundraising easy for everyone!
