From Pew Trusts: Are School Fundraisers a Back Door for Junk Food?
As support for better school nutrition grows throughout the nation, and as school districts are setting new healthy standards for snacks and other food sold at school, the ubiquitous school fundraiser has become a back door for junk food sales to kids. One state even created an exception to the rules, allowing as many as four unhealthy food fundraisers per day. See how policymakers are fighting back in this video from the Kids’ Safe and Healthful Food Project, a collaboration between the Pew Charitable Trusts and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.
