Fresh to You Fundraiser

Fresh to You Fundraiser

Connecting Students to Agriculture

We've developed a unique fundraising opportunity for schools that also encourages students and their families to eat more fruits and vegetables. Fresh to You is a fundraising initiative for K-12 schools in BC. Schools participating in Fresh to You Fundraiser receive bundles of locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables to sell to family and friends as a fundraiser. 

Why Fresh to You?

  • It promotes healthy food choices to students and their families.
  • It provides high-quality, fresh, and seasonal produce for a healthy fundraising option.
  • Produce for the Fundraiser is primarily sourced from local BC suppliers, so your school is supporting BC farmers and growers in your community!
  • Fresh to You provides information for your students and community members about fresh, locally grown vegetables; as well as, recipes to give you ideas on how to enjoy your produce at home.
  • Your school will collect 40% of all profits made on FTY bundles sold.

Sign Us Up!

Fresh to You Fundraiser is available to all K-12 schools in BC.

Schools must apply or re-apply each year by completing and submitting an online application, which is located on your school login. If your school doesn’t already have a school login with a BCAITC program (such as BC School Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program, Planting a Promise, Spuds in Tubs, or Take a Bite of BC), click this link to register for the Fresh to you Fundraiser. BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation (BCAITC) will notify all schools currently enrolled in a BCAITC program by email, advising coordinator and principals when we are accepting online applications.  This is an application only and not confirmation that your school has been accepted into the program. We will advise schools of their acceptance by email and your school login will include the necessary forms and support materials needed to proceed. Participation in Fresh to You is based on our supplier's ability to deliver to your area.

What Do We Need to Get Started?

  • Association with a K-12 school in BC. 
  • A fundraising team and a team coordinator to oversee the program and communicate with the BCAITC representative.
  • Your school must order a minimum of 40 bundles in total in order to participate.
  • A team of parents, students, and volunteers to unload the orders from the delivery truck, gather the orders for distribution, and arrange to distribute the bundles to students and their families.
  • Adequate space and personnel to receive your delivery (the driver of the delivery truck cannot assist in unloading the bundles).

Teachers and Parents Ask the Best Questions

2. Is there a cost to parents or schools to participate?

As a participant in the fundraiser, schools will be charged a $60 administration fee, payable to BC Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation (BCAITC).

3. How many times a year is Fresh to You offered?

Fresh to You is offered once a year, in the fall.

4. What types of products are the students selling?

The product can vary from year to year. In the past, some vegetable bundles have included potatoes, carrots, beets, cabbage, and squash, while others are comprised of a variety of fruits, almost always including apples. Each bundle contains fresh, locally grown produce, offering healthy fresh foods for students and their families.

5. Is there a minimum requirement to participate?

Your school must sell a minimum of 40 bundles in total in order to participate and receive delivery of your order.

6. Where is the product grown?

Our primary objective is to buy BC produce, from BC suppliers, through BC wholesalers. Through this process, we support local businesses wherever possible. In some cases, unforeseen crop shortages due to adverse growing conditions may affect delivery, resulting in substitutions from suppliers outside of the province.

7. Is the product organic?

Some of the fruit and vegetable snacks we serve are organically grown. Many of them, while not certified organic, are grown utilizing organic practices.

8. What type of bags are used for the bundles?

BCAITC supplies bags that have been donated by BCfresh.

9. How much money can be made on the fundraiser?

The school receives a 40% profit on all sales, less the $60 administration fee. There’s no limit to how much money a school can make — the amount each school raises depends on how many bundles they sell.

10. How does the product arrive at the schools?

The product is delivered to the schools on a pallet via our distribution partners at Associated Grocers
