Fifty Cent Food Days (FCFD)

The Student Representative Council (SRC) run two “Fifty Cent Food Days” (FCFD) per term as a fundraising option. The generous donation of food items by families give the SRC 100% profit, allowing them to make donations to charities and the School. Students enjoy the ‘mini’ tuckshop twice a term, allowing them to experience handling money, making food choices and maybe trying a new food.

During FCFD, parents are encouraged to donate different food options for students to purchase.

Cakes are welcome but I would encourage parents to consider the following options from the Smart Choices Amber and Green Groups when donating goods for the FCFD. The options are only limited by your creativity and imagination. Packaging food items in serving sizes makes it easy and hygienically appropriate for distribution.
