It’s officially the school year and that means that school fundraisers are underway! Farm to School Manitoba is an innovative alternative to the traditional chocolate bar sales, selling fruits and veggies instead.

This can be a great opportunity to fundraise for your school or daycare by selling wholesome, healthy vegetables!  Farm to school Manitoba will ship fresh vegetables to local schools for fundraising.

Here are some facts about Farm to School Manitoba Healthy Veggie Fundraiser :

  • 50% of total sales go directly to the participating school or daycare center.
  • The remaining 50% go directly to the vegetable growers, contributing to Canadian sustainable farming.
  • There is opportunity to double your earning power by donating fresh veggies directly to a Food Bank! The school or daycare receives 50% of the sales and families in need receive fresh local veggies!
  • Delivery is included with every order throughout the entire province!

Half Your Plate is proud to be a partner of this initiative. Plan for fall 2015 by visiting www.FarmtoSchoolManitoba.ca and enroll today!
