A fundraiser is an event that includes any activity during which currency, tokens, tickets, donation for, or other forms of payment are exchanged for the sale or purchase of a product. This includes payment that is made toward a future purchase. There is no limit on fundraisers that meet the Competitive Food Nutrition Standards. Any food and/or beverage item that meets the standards may be sold on the school campus during the school day.
Campuses may sell food and/or beverages as part a fundraiser that does not meet the Competitive Food Nutrition Standards during the school day for up to six (6) days per school year on each school campus. Food and/or beverages sold during an exempt fundraiser must not be sold in competition with school meals in the food service area during the school meal service.
Exemption Day Requests should be submitted to the Assistant Superintendent of Operations at least fifteen business days prior to the date of the anticipated event. Principals are encouraged to submit these dates for approval as early in the school year as possible.
