Untitled 1 Healthy School Food Maryland

Jump start healthy eating habits at your school and raise funds for your PTA by partnering with Real Food for Kids - Montgomery in the "5 for 5 Challenge"!

How does it work?

Kids commit to eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each Leila and spread of fruits and veggies day for one school week and try to get sponsors to support their efforts. Participants invite family and friends to sponsor them and RFKM and the PTA split the profits. Each participant will have their own online fundraising page, which they can send to friends and family to make a tax-deductible donation. RFKM supplies the back end fundraising software, all the poster templates, e-mail Collette and Raphael trying new veggies templates, a Power Point on healthy eating for teachers, and food and drinks for a party at the end of the challenge. PTAs agree to the use of their name and logo and to send out posters (elementary school only) and messages to support the challenge, and provide the venue, arrangements, plates, silverware, cups, napkins and volunteers for an in-school party for Zoe and fruit and veggie platter participants.

Fundraising Goals:
Participants are encouraged to set a minimum fundraising goal of $25. Donors can sponsor participants to eat just one serving of fruits and vegetables for $5 or sponsor an entire day's worth of servings for just $25!
