Support the Fresh To You Fundraiser Now
Are you health conscious? Do you enjoy fresh fruits and vegetables? Do you want to support your local school’s fundraising? Do you want to help your community’s well-being? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation (BCAITC) invites you to take part in the 2020 BCAITC Fresh To You Fundraiser taking place at your local school this fall!
How Does it Work?
- Now to October 23, connect with a school in your community taking part in the Fresh To You Fundraiser (see list at the bottom of this page).
- Purchase one or more healthy bundles of locally grown BC fruits and vegetables from the school. Bundle A is just $20 and includes: 5lb bag of Pacific Sunrise Potatoes, 2lb bag of carrots, Lovable Little Squash (3 Pack), 3lb bag of Red Beets. Bundle B is just $25 and includes: 5 lb bag of Pacific Sunrise Potatoes, 3 lb bag of Yellow Onions, 2lb bag of Carrots, 3lb bag of Red Beets, 5lb bag of Gala Apples.
- In early to mid November, drop by the school and pick up your pre-paid order.
- Then enjoy the fruits and veggies with your friends, family, and co-workers in healthy meals. You can even try using the produce in one of BCAITC’s tasty online recipes.
By supporting BCAITC's Fresh To You Fundraiser, you are helping schools raise funds for school programs, resources, and activities (schools receive 40% of the profit on all Fresh to You Fundraiser sales). Additionally, you are helping defeat hunger in your community as each school will give a free "caring bundle" of produce to local families in need for every bundle A or B the school sells (compliments of BCAITC).
Last year 5,248 fresh bundles were sold in 150 communities in our province, raising over $51,276 for schools. With your help, we can help exceed these figures and help our province’s schools succeed. Thanks for your support of this BC grown healthy initiative!
