Healthy Fundraisers

I know of a few great resources for alternatives to selling unhealthy foods in schools for fundraisers.

Developed by the NYC Department of Health's Strategic Alliance for Health: Yes You Can! A Fresh Look at Healthy Fundraisers for Schools

Another is by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI): http://www.cspinet.org/schoolfundraising.pdf

and another is by California Project LEAN: Creative School Fundraising Ideas

Additionally, one of the schools I work with in the Bronx (PS 218) has successfully been selling dried fruit as a fundraiser, instead of candy/junk food. The brand they've been using is Brothers All Natural.
