4 Different Types of Food Fundraising

There are so many delicious forms of fundraising!

Fundraising can be a tall task, whether it’s in a school or for a sports team, and Claire’s Gourmet knows how to make fundraising fun and delicious! There are four core types of food fundraisers available today, which one will you choose?

Candy & Chocolate

This food fundraiser is incredibly popular because the items sell themselves! Chocolate is especially easy to sell around the holidays and around Easter, as families are planning on purchasing goodies that time of year anyways. If you get quality chocolate and candies, parents will also start to plan on selling them every year and look forward to the goodies. Candy is also a great way to get those who don’t want to spend a lot on a food fundraiser involved, as items can cost as little as a few dollars.


When it comes to dough, just about every type of it imaginable can be used as a food fundraiser. Cookie dough, pizza dough, cinnamon roll dough, and even pretzel dough have all been used with great success to raise money. Try baking samples to hand out to prospective customers and let them know how good the products are. Think of what times of year customers like to enjoy things and try to time your sales accordingly (cookie dough around Christmas time and pizza kits during football season, for example).

Refrigerated Prepared Foods

Many people don’t realize that refrigerated prepared foods are one of the most popular food fundraisers currently available. The only limit is your imagination when it comes to this category, and organizations have sold cheesecakes, pies, meats, and even breakfast burritos! Delicious convenience food is always popular, so it’s hard to go wrong with this food fundraiser.


Popcorn is a very pop-ular food fundraiser, as everyone loves it! If your school is health-conscious, popcorn can be a great thing to sell that is nutritious and fun. Popcorn is also easy to sell to people without much refrigerator or freezer space who want to support you but don’t have much space to do so.
