Fundraising in a Health Promoting School
The Food and Nutrition Policy for Nova Scotia Public Schools includes the following directive:
Fundraising with food and beverages organized by and through schools will centre only on items of Maximum or Moderate Nutrition (i.e. healthy items). This includes all school fundraising activities (e.g., campaigns, canteens, vending machines, and all sales during the day, after school and evenings).
Why Fundraise with Non-food or Healthy Food and Beverages?
It provides an opportunity to support nutrition messages taught in the classroom, home, and broader community. It also allows schools to show their commitment to promoting healthy living while addressing their financial needs.
