reaching epidemic levels among children, schools nationwide are
struggling with concerns about junk food sold on campus.
Meanwhile, PTAs and other parent groups are beginning to worry
about the amount of fundraising that involves selling sweets and
other unhealthy foods.
In response to those concerns, a free guide to non-food
fundraising ideas is now available online. The new guide was
created by the San Francisco Unified School Districtís Student
Nutrition and Physical Activity Committee, which is overseeing
the implementation of a "no empty calories" food policy
throughout San Francisco schools.
The guide is currently available on the website of a volunteer,
parent-run San Francisco research and information project,
Parents Advocating School Accountability, at
www.pasasf.org. On the
homepage, scroll down to "issues."
